NEWINGTON -- Gov. M. Jodi Rell proposed a four-year, $500 million energy plan for Connecticut on Monday, marking one of her first major public policy initiatives in this year's race for governor.It's interesting that Governor Rell seems only to tackle problems once they become just that, a problem. The DeStefano team wasted no time in calling her out on this:
"Connecticut has the highest electric rates in the continental U.S. and rates are about to rise again in a few months, just as winter arrives," spokesman Derek Slap said. "Incredibly, Governor Rell offers no help. It's another example that she just doesn't understand the simple fact that you can't afford to live in Connecticut anymore."How long have Connecticut energy prices been high for? How long has Governor Rell been Governor? Is she chronically behind the curve?
Update II: GMR has a very well thought out comment on the substance of the plans:
