Should a two-thirds vote be required before a public electric utility could expand its service area? Californians will answer that question June 8th when they vote on Prop. 16, an initiative funded by the for-profit electric company PG&E.
PG&E says Prop. 16 is intended to protect the interests of public utility ratepayers. Opponents say it’s really intended to protect the interests of PG&E.
Jeffrey Callison talks with Robin Swanson, a spokesperson for the “Yes on Prop 16” campaign and John Geesman, an opponent of Prop. 16 who served on the California Energy Commission from 2002 to 2008 and is Co-Chair of the Board of Directors of the American Council.
