Conn. Senate joins House in supporting electricity billing transparency

The Connecticut House of Representatives joined the state Senate on Monday in unanimously approving a bill to provide more transparent billing and marketing by electricity suppliers. Lawmakers passed the bill in response to hundreds of consumer complaints about sharply higher prices and deceptive marketing.

AARP Connecticut says the legislation does not go far enough in providing consumer protections.
