AARP Asks Legislators For help With Utilities, In-Home Care

Members of the Mohawk Valley AARP visited the district offices of Senator Joe Griffo and Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi to encourage them to address two issues that are critical to the area’s senior citizen population.

The AARP is asking the lawmakers to push for $26 million to ensure cost effective, non-Medicaid in-home services for the elderly.

They also want New York’s utility consumer advocate office to be made independent.

They say that would give it the power to sue over unfair rate increases and provide residential taxpayers with a voice when rate hike requests are made.

The AARP says New Yorkers already pay the highest average residential electric rates in the U-S without an independent utility consumer advocate to make their case.
