LOOKING OUT FOR YOU....
There’s an old saying in politics: “If you’re not at the table, you’re on the menu.” Well, Florida’s electric co-ops
recently went to the table to speak up for co-op consumers as participants in the National Rural Electric Cooperative
Association’s annual legislative conference. The conference in Washington, D.C., drew more than 3,000 electric
co-op directors, managers, and employees from across America, who went to Capitol Hill to discuss our positions
on legislative issues affecting non-profit co-ops and their member-owners. Florida co-op representatives personally
visited the offices of 19 Florida Congressmen and women. At each meeting, we reiterated our concerns regarding
climate change legislation, proposed renewable energy and conservation mandates, and the lack of rail competition.
As we shared our concerns with legislators, every office we visited had received e-mails through electric co-ops’ Our
Energy, Our Future campaign. Your advocacy efforts through this program are making a difference, so don’t let up
now. Keep up – and step up – your efforts to speak up for electric co-ops and their consumers by asking your U.S.
Senators and Representatives to make a commitment to:
Promote a fair hearing on the state of climate science, so we can determine the realistic benefits that would
come from costly efforts to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions,
Oppose the use of electric bills to collect revenues to fund other programs, through a carbon tax or a
similar tax scheme, based on attributed carbon emissions,
Ensure that electric utilities can continue to plan to meet future demand while the energy policy debate
Encourage the development of renewable energy sources, conservation, and energy efficiency, through
grants, loan guarantees, low interest loans, and research, not arbitrary, one-size-fits-all mandates,
Support transmission development to connect highly productive renewable resources in remote areas to
high demand areas,
Support the Railroad Antitrust Enforcement Act to eliminate the railroad industry’s exemption from
antitrust laws (S. 146, H.R. 233). CSX Transportation is the sole provider of rail transportation to SGS, which
makes Seminole a “captive shipper.” Seminole filed a complaint with the Surface Transportation Board in
2008, challenging the new tariff rates that went into effect in January 2009. Seminole’s position is that CSX’s
tariff rates are excessive, and far beyond the “reasonable” rates allowable under current regulation.
