Local AARP Members Lobby For Utility Watchdog
Local AARP members boarded a bus at the North Utica Senior Center this morning for a trip to Albany.
Bill Armbruster, AARP New York State Associate Director, says New York is one of ten states without a utility consumer advocate.
Armbruster says that's one of the reasons New Yorkers pay the highest average electric in the continental United States.
A new statewide AARP survey shows that voters age 50 and older overwhelmingly support the bill and don't think their elected officials are doing enough to combat rising utility costs.
