AARP Maryland Applauds the General Assembly for Taking Real Steps to Protect Low-income Family Utility Bills with the Passage of SB31/HB397
ANNAPOLIS (April 9, 2021) -- The General Assembly took significant steps late yesterday to protect low-income Marylanders’ utility bills, while also maximizing state funds, with the passage of SB31/HB397. The legislation ensures that deregulated electricity and natural gas prices offered to families on energy assistance meet, or beat, regulated utility rates.
