Cunningham Plans To Co-Author A Bill Connected To PG&E Safety Shutoffs

PG&E cut power to roughly a half-million people in the Sierra foothills and northern California due to dangerous fire weather conditions this week. For many customers, it was the second time in two weeks they were left in the dark. Now, Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham says he plans to co-author a bill that would require PG&E shareholders to reimburse small businesses and families for costs associated with Public Safety Power Shutoffs. Governor Gavin Newsom has asked PG&E officials to credit its residential customers and small businesses between 100 and 250 dollars. PG&E wants to wait until after a review by the California Public Utilities Commission.
