San Onofre Update
In mid-November, two administrative law judges agreed that ratepayers are due a refund from Southern California Edison because of unsound decisions the utility made in May 2012 --the date Southern California Edison should have known that both units 2 and 3 would not likely return to normal operation due to unprecedented tube wear in the steam generators. The refund, in the amount of 94 million dollars, is derived from over-collected funds after May 2012. Additional decisions are pending regarding further refunds for ratepayers who have been charged for replacement power costs during San Onofre's long shutdown. The California Public Utilities' five commissioners will make their decision on December 19, 2013.

Why Public Financing or Clean Elections?
Public financing or clean elections levels the playing field, reduces the impact of lobbyists and special interests and means that candidates don't have to be wealthy to run for office. For more information on clean elections, go to www.sdcleanelections.org; watch the DVD "Road to Clean Elections”trac narrated by Bill Moyers on youtube; or contact John Hartley at 619-299-8870 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
