Detroit Building Momentum

With backing from the Attorney General, Rep. Gary Glenn's "opt-out" legislation is gaining support. However, it is not clear if the opt-out would be free, and if it would provide the option for a safe electromechanical analog. And a free opt-out, again, is only a milestone — as harming everyone else is not ok.

San Antonio Showdown

In San Antonio, CPS has admitted to overcharging customers, who packed a library meeting room and let the utility have it.
