Call For Tougher Regs After Gas Outage Report Released

A call is being made for tougher utility regulations after a report on the January Aquidneck Island natural gas outage was released this week. The report from the Rhode Island Public Utilities and Carriers places blame with National Grid and pipeline company Enbridge for the incident. Governor Gina Raimondo says she pushed for legislation to give more regulatory power to the RI PUC immediately after the crisis, but that legislators didn't comply. She said she will call on the General Assembly again to pass legislation when it reconvenes in January.
