Maryland representative from Montgomery and Prince George's county are urging state regulators to take severe action against Pepco and Baltimore Gas and Electric following the June 29 storm and its elongated, widespread power outages.

Senators Brian Frosh, D-Montgomery, James Rosapepe, D-Prince George's, suggested fines reaching more than $100 million for the power service providers and "wrote in a letter Thursday to the Public Service Commission that the money could be used to create a 'Surge Reserve' fund to pay for additional trained workers to help restore power faster," according to a report by WTOP.

The senators also have opened an online petition for local consumers to sign in support of the sanctions, WTOP reported.

Pepco now is pleased with their performance after the storm. What dream world are they living in: no power, refridgeration, AC, telephone, lights for 6 days, while the top executives continue to reap billions in bonuses and they want an increase on top of this!! What planet are they living on to commend their performance.?
