... built Upstate New York and made it thrive.
Our elected leaders have already trashed the cheap transportation part by not eliminating the Thruway Authority and its Tolls after all our competitors got free interstate highways.
Are they doing it again with power? It sure looks like it:
GOP senators say Canada to NYC power line will cost jobs .
The proposed project does not seem to have the environmental/aesthetic disadvantages of the NYRI proposal. So far, I do not hear that the proposal will raise Upstate power rates as NYRI was projected to do. So what is the problem?
Sounds like Upstate power producers will have too much power on their hands if NYC stops purchasing it. They will have to lower the rates to get rid of it. They will have to become more efficient.
Perhaps Upstate power rates will finally be brought into line what that of our competitors for jobs.
These senators seem to be more interested in protecting private business interests than bringing about an economic revival in Upstate NY.
