The Florida Legislature

Repeal the Advance Nuclear Fee costing Floridians over a billion dollars

      Dwight Dudley

      St Petersburg, FL

In 2006, former legislator Frank Farkas voted to allow utility companies to charge Floridians in advance for new power plants. Experts say the plants may never be built, but the power companies will get to keep over $1 billion taken from hardworking families like ours.

It's not fair, it's not right, and it's happening because career politicians like Frank Farkas keep siding with special interests over middle-class Floridians. Farkas voted to raise your rates so utility corporations could rake in cash for themselves. Frankly, we can't afford more of that failed leadership.

Dwight Dudley, candidate for Florida House of Representatives District 68, is making this pledge to you: send him to the Florida House, and he will repeal the advance nuclear fee. You can join him by signing this petition and sending a message to Tallahassee that you want the fee repealed.

After signing the petition, learn more about Dwight at www.ElectDwightDudley.com and help him make Florida work for the people once again.

      Utility companies are inherently monopolistic and, as such, should be subject to far greater government oversight and regulation than they currently receive. In light of the Enron and MCI-Worldcom fraud convictions, it should be plainly apparent that the excesses of profit-seeking utility companies are inherently harmful to the consumers who have no choice but to use their services. If these corporate entities do not operate in service to the public interest, they should either have their charters revoked and be dissolved, or at least be legally barred from doing business in our state.

      I do not believe customers should have to pay for nuclear plant repairs or pay for building plants in advance of the plants being built when it is uncertain that the plants will actually be built.
