Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Jeers: Could someone please add some meaningful structure to the regulatory environment? Recent events has led us to believe that Albany would rather create short cut after short cut instead of making real decisions. A bill that passed in the New York State Senate recently is a perfect example. Sen. George Maziarz sponsored the bill that would preempt the Public Service Commission from regulating electric car charging stations. According to Maziarz’s office, the legislation “will provide regulatory surety to companies that want to partner with the state in constructing, maintaining and operating electric vehicle charging stations.” We’re all for expanding the use of electric cars, but this bill is simply a way to skirt current regulations. In other words, it’s legislation to side-step legislation.
