  • Stabenow, Levin Call for a Delay of Increase in Electric Bills for Upper Peninsula Families, Small Businesses

    U.S. Senators Debbie Stabenow and Carl Levin today urged the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to delay electric rate increases for families and businesses in the Upper Peninsula and act on the complaint filed by the Michigan Public Service Commission about these unjust and unreasonable rate hikes. The Upper Peninsula would have to pay nearly $100 million annually to operate the Presque Isle Power Plant, if the proposed electric rate increases are approved by FERC. This increase is scheduled to take place after December 1 and is the result of a regulatory decision made by the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC) to force consumers in the Upper Peninsula to pay for 99 percent of the Presque Isle Power Plant's operating costs. This decision by NERC upended an earlier federal finding that UP customers should be responsible for just 14 percent of the power plant's operating costs. FERC shares oversight responsibilities and has a mandate to consider utility cost allocation issues. The Senators called for a moratorium on this decision while the agency considers the Michigan Public Service Commission's complaint that these rate increases are not just and reasonable. The letter also encourages the agency to work with local stakeholders on a long-term solution to the UP's power issues.

  • Senator Stabenow Statement on Asian Carp eDNA Found in the Kalamazoo River

    U.S. Senator Debbie Stabenow today made the following statement regarding the Asian carp eDNA that was recently found in the Kalamazoo River: "I am extremely concerned that Asian carp eDNA was found in any part of the Great Lakes and its tributaries. The Army Corps of Engineers and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service need to take immediate steps and conduct further testing to ensure that Asian carp have not spread to the Kalamazoo River. Time is running out to stop Asian carp from devastating our Great Lakes and the thousands of jobs that depend on them. Today's news is another reason why we need to permanently close the barrier between the Chicago Waterway System and the Great Lakes."
