Dominion CEO Warns Against Utility Reliance on Natural Gas
The U.S. natural gas boom has been good to Dominion Resources Inc. (D) but the company's top executive warned Friday against an overreliance on the fuel by electric utilities.
While the U.S. has more than enough gas to serve utilities and industry and also export gas overseas, a large-scale move by U.S. utilities to replace their aging coal and nuclear power plants solely with plants that run on natural gas would lead to higher gas and electricity prices for consumers, said Thomas Farrell, Dominion's chief executive.

House Bill To Privatize Wine And Spirits Stores Threatens 5,000 Good Jobs
Representative Mike Turzai has introduced HB 790, designed to dismantle the PA Wine and Spirits stores, and which will put liquor stores on street corners in neighborhoods all across our state. The bill, if passed, would eliminate 5,000 family-sustaining jobs, and get rid of a reliable revenue stream worth a half a BILLION dollars in profit and tax revenue annually.
If you have not already done so, we are urging our members to TAKE ACTION! Support the workers of the Wine and Spirits stores by contacting your legislator and urging them to oppose any effort to privatize the PLCB. Tell them to modernize, not privatize!
