Brown Slams LIPA-PSEG’s Reckless Spending

Assemblyman Keith P. Brown (R,C-Northport) today condemned the actions of LIPA and PSEG Long Island after a report revealed four of their top executives are paid to live in different states, $1M was spent in promotional advertisements and even more was spent on lobbying efforts. A report of this magnitude is disturbing, considering ratepayers across Long Island are paying electric bills that are twice as high today as they were a year ago.

“While ratepayers are feeling the financial burden of utility costs, PSEG Long Island is keen on wasting millions of dollars on self-promotional spending and lobbying, all while their top executives reside in different states. With inflation reaching a 40-year high, you’d expect a public utility company use their resources to minimize rates and provide quality service. Long Islanders deserve better for the amount they pay.”
