“Electricity customer bill of rights, annuity protection and payday and auto-title loan reform are state legislative issues for which AARP will fight.

Something needs to be done about giving consumers more informed choices on electricity providers. Consumers are given choices, but do we really know what they mean? We have more than 40 retail electric providers (REPs) offering more than 140 different plans. How is the consumer supposed to sort through these plans and decide what is best? Just today I received an e-mail from an electric company that gives away points that can be used toward vacations. How does this company compare to the one I now use and have used for many years? More information would be helpful.”
