Preemption on Restriction of Utility Services (Oppose)

SB 1128 (Hutson) and HB 919 (Tomkow) prohibit a local government from enacting or enforcing an ordinance or resolution that restricts or prohibits, or has the effect of restricting or prohibiting, a property owner, tenant or utility service customer from choosing his or her electric utility service regardless of energy source. The bills do not restrict a local government’s power to levy taxes on public services or the right of a municipality to receive revenue from any public utility. (O’Hara)
