Connecticut AG Released Statement Following Gas Rate Hike Requests by Two Utility Companies

Connecticut Attorney General William Tong issued the following statement after Connecticut Natural Gas Corporation (CNG) and Southern Connecticut Gas Company (SCG) submitted requests to the Public Utilities Regulatory Authority asking for significant rate increases: “Connecticut families pay far too much for basic utilities. We all appreciate the need to invest in safe, reliable gas distribution, but we also need to acknowledge just how difficult it is for families right now to make ends meet. I’ll be scrutinizing every line of this application and playing an active, aggressive role in these proceedings before PURA to ensure no one pays any more than absolutely necessary.”
