House of Representatives
Session of 2019 - 2020 Regular Session


Posted: June 26, 2020 04:06 PM
From: Representative Christina D. Sappey
To: All House members
Subject: Water Ratepayer Bill of Rights
As public utilities, water and wastewater service providers should demonstrate plainly that they are delivering their customers safe services at a fair price. 
To ensure this level of transparency and accountability, I am introducing legislation that would provide a bill of rights to water and wastewater ratepayers. This comprehensive bill will:
  • Require water and wastewater utilities to publish an annual report with information regarding average residential billing amounts. 
  • Reforms the acquisition process for water and wastewater systems, ensuring that residential customers do not experience inflated rates 
  • Allow customers to have an expanded role in matters regarding acquisitions and the source of their water. 
Join me so we can ensure ratepayer rights for fairness and transparency in public water utilities. I appreciate your consideration and support. 

Introduced as HB2746
