Bacon a leader in the legislature addressing predatory practices against consumers
From the Columbus Dispatch:
At the Statehouse, previous bills have lacked support — most notably, any real juice from leadership — to reach a vote. This session, two new bills to regulate certain practices of submetering companies were introduced in May. Predictably, they have stalled.
The first, by Sen. Kevin Bacon, R-Minerva Park, was initially said to stand a good shot — critics call it industry friendly. But this bill, which Bacon has worked to improve and balance, would arm consumers with information, for instance requiring clear notice of submetering and an estimate of typical unit costs.
