-- How Will You Use This Story? --


(OPEN):
ON WEDNESDAY [DECEMBER 17TH], "A-A-R-P NEW JERSEY" WILL DELIVER PETITIONS FROM THOUSANDS OF "JERSEY CENTRAL POWER-AND-LIGHT"-CUSTOMERS THAT URGE THE "BOARD OF PUBLIC UTILITIES" TO DECIDE THE COMPANY'S LONG-PENDING RATE-CASE--AND ENSURE THAT ITS RATES ARE REASONABLE AND FAIR.  EVELYN LIEBMAN IS THE ORGANIZATION'S ASSOCIATE STATE-DIRECTOR FOR ADVOCACY...

(LIEBMAN):
"
IT'S THREE YEARS SINCE THE 'DIVISION OF RATE-COUNSEL' PETITIONED THE BOARD TO REQUIRE 'J-C-P-AND-L' TO OPEN ITS BOOKS--BASED ON EVIDENCE THAT THE COMPANY IS OVEREARNING, AND THUS OVERCHARGING ITS MORE-THAN-ONE-MILLION CUSTOMERS.  THE BOARD NOW HAS EXTENSIVE EVIDENCE THAT THE COMPANY HAS INDEED OVEREARNED, BY MORE THAN 200-MILLION DOLLARS--ALL ON THE BACKS OF ITS CUSTOMERS.  HOWEVER, THE BOARD STILL HASN'T ACTED.  WE'VE HEARD, FROM THOUSANDS OF CUSTOMERS, THAT ENOUGH IS ENOUGH--AND IT'S TIME FOR THEIR VOICES TO BE HEARD.  THAT'S WHY WE'RE DELIVERING THEIR PETITIONS TO THE BOARD--DEMANDING LONG-OVERDUE ACTION."
