Phil Coupe is right (“Another View: Cheap hydropower from Canada not so cheap,” July 9). Unless the Legislature overrides Gov. LePage’s veto of L.D. 1504, all ratepayers will be on the hook to implement the new, flawed Public Utilities Commission rule.

Make no mistake: This is about protecting the profits of the utility companies and the monied interests of the fossil fuel industry, not about doing what’s best for ratepayers, our environment or energy independence.

Let your legislators know that you want them to override the veto of L.D. 1504.
