Re "California once again a trailblazer on energy?" (Viewpoints, Sept. 22): Energy policy writer Peter Asmus gives a pass to two bad bills. Assembly Bill 327 adds $120 a year to all electric utility bills. But all ratepayers, including solar customers, already pay a surcharge for infrastructure, so AB327 just adds to that broad tax. It has nothing to do with improving fairness.
Senate Bill 4 does not reveal the amounts of each fracking component. It does no good to tell us, for example, that fracking fluid contains hydrofluoric acid. This corrosive fluid is of greater concern in large quantities than small.
