Senators seek power rate solution

Posted: Updated:

Yakima, Wash -- All six Northwest Senators are asking The Bonneville Power Administration to figure out a solution to maintain affordable power.  

Power rates are set to increase by ten to fifteen percent a month because of a recent court ruling.

The Senators want the BPA to hold a conference to resolve the legal problems, and keep electricity prices low.
