Action Alert: Power companies trying to pull plug on Smart Meter Bills in TN

In Uncategorized on February 15, 2013 at 1:50 PM

We need your immediate assistance! Do not delay! This is an action alert sent out by the TN Legislative Team, we appreciate the heads up by Karen Bracken, who has been following this closely.

The Power Companies and their lobbyist are trying to change the wording in the bills which will leave them essentially ineffective. Please call and email the names and numbers provided below. You want change? You must support those that are creating the change! We can not simply sit back and watch as big money and back door power moves destroy our state and country!


The Utility companies are trying to strip the language of our SMART METER bill.  If they are successful the bill will be rendered useless to all Tennesseans.  WE NEED YOUR HELP NOW.
Please spread the word to all patriot members, friends, neighbors and relatives.  We need phone calls and emails to the following Sub Committee and Committee members.   Ask them to support our bill AS WRITTEN.  We The People should come before special interest groups that might give campaign money but the voters are who put you in office and we can take elected officials out of office too.  (REMEMBER MONDAY, FEB. 18 IS A HOLIDAY)  Lets get prepared to hit the phones hard on TUESDAY.  But you can send email NOW!!  Tell the committee members you SUPPORT HB373/SB283 and would like it passed AS WRITTEN.
This is the first ACTION ALERT of the legislative session but it will surely not be the last.   Let them know we are watching and we are paying attention!!!
Smart Meters are a proven carcinogen.  They are an invasion of privacy and the end game is to ration electric, gas and water while raising the costs to the rate payer.  Less energy used=loss of revenue to the utility company=higher cost to you with rationed use!!!  What sounds good today often comes back to bite us years down the road.
