Cicilline Statement on National Grid's Proposed 15% Rate Hike

Tuesday, November 28, 2017

PAWTUCKET - U.S. Congressman David N. Cicilline (RI-01) issued the following statement today:

"Rhode Island's working families are already getting crushed by high costs from their pharmacy to their cable bill. Now, National Grid is proposing a 15% hike in the rates Rhode Islanders pay for electricity and gas."

"This is unacceptable. The Public Utilities Commission needs to take a hard look at this proposal and do the right thing for Rhode Island families."
