FEBRUARY 19TH – The Smart Meter Bill We Have Been Waiting For! As previously announced, there will be a hearing in Lansing on HB 4220 sponsored by Rep Gary Glenn with 17 cosponsors. This is the smart meter legislation we have been waiting for. If passed, it will absolutely address the privacy issue for all utility customers and should go a long way toward addressing health issues experienced by some. We owe thanks to Rep Glenn and the cosponsors for going out on a limb to support this legislation. Now they need us to show our support if the bill is to have a chance to pass first the Energy Committee, and then the full house. More

February 8th – Michigan 2017 Smart Meter Bill in Works. There’s a move in the state legislature to get rid of fees that utilities charge to customers who want to keep their “old meters”. … smartmeterhearing-picture-from-news-10-story-on-2017-sm-bill“As long as those utilities are a state privilege monopoly given the right exclusively to deliver electricity, then we are going to protect homeowners from that kind of monopoly policy,” said Rep. Glenn. “Trying to force certain technology on homeowners against their will or if they refuse to have it installed, charge them.   More

February 6th – Monopoly Effect of Public/Private Partnerships – President Trump is calling for a major new investment for rebuilding the nation’s infrastructure of highways, bridges and more. There is no question abandoned-road-1428461836blsthat it needs to be done. However, it’s vitally important that local, state and federal government agencies avoid calls to fund this massive effort through so-called Public/Private Partnerships (PPPs). Local officials must understand that there is a vast difference between calls for a competitive biding process to select private companies for the projects verses an actual partnership with government.

“Privacy is the right to the self. Privacy is what
gives you the ability to share with the world who
you are, on your own terms. For them to understand
what you’re trying to be. And to protect for yourself
the parts of you you’re not sure about, that you’re
still experimenting with. If we don’t have privacy,
what we’re losing is the ability to make mistakes.
We’re losing the ability to be ourselves.”

Edward Snowden
