Say No to FERC Nominee

Your utility bills may already be rising and are likely to continue to do so if Bush gets his wish with confirmation of his nominated commissioner to the Federal Regulatory Energy Commission (FERC). You won't be surprised to find out, his nominee, Phil Moeller, is a utility lobbyist. 

Moeller is a registered lobbyist for energy companies, representing such firms as Calpine (fined millions of dollars for manipulating the electricity market in California and national natural gas markets) and Alliant Energy, which controls utilities in Wisconsin, Illinois, Iowa Minnesota. In his capacity as an industry lobbyist, he has been paid handsomely to promote the deregulation of utility rates.  Deregulation was supposed to benefit you and consumers but it has led to higher natural gas and electric rates.

Tell your Senators to vote no on Phil Moeller.
