Agenda: Link to Review  


This Thursday, California State Assemblymember Tasha Boerner Horvath will speak with our members regarding the results of the California State Auditor's independent audit of San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E) and other utilities rate increases for San Diego ratepayers and how the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) approves those increases.

Assemblymember Boerner Horvath introduced Assembly Bill (AB) 2666 and 2683 to lower utility rates for all Californians. AB 2666 will set clear expectations to ensure that the utility companies are not making excessive profits off the backs of hard-working Californians. AB 2683 will require the California Public Advocates Office to push for lower utility rates every time rate increases are proposed.”

She represents the 77th District, encompassing Carlsbad, Encinitas, Solana Beach, Del Mar, and the coastal communities of La Jolla south to Coronado.
