Memory Blackout

Last week, Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. took the General Assembly to task for passing electricity deregulation in 1999.

That same year, though, Ehrlich, himself, cast a vote for electricity deregulation when the matter came before the House Energy and Power subcommittee. According to an item on the Center for Responsive Politics web site, Ehrlich voted yes on HR 2944, a bill that promoted restructuring but left most of the work up to the states.

The web site also notes that of the 28 committee members, only five took in more donations than did Ehrlich from the electric utilities that year. He received $19,222 in contributions from energy interests, according to the group.
