Undergrounding electric transmission lines. Adds Stafford County to the list of jurisdictions in which the governing body is authorized to enter into an agreement with an electric utility that provides for an additional charge to be included in the utility bills of customers located in a special rate district. The proceeds from the charge will be used to cover the utility's additional costs of constructing, operating and maintaining proposed high-voltage transmission lines underground rather than overhead. The measure does not apply to lines in operation as of March 1, 2005. Read the Bill »
