AFP-WI Statement on ‘Right of First Refusal’ Passing Assembly

Feb 15, 2024 by AFP

Madison, WI — Today, the Wisconsin State Assembly passed AB 470, “Right of First Refusal” legislation eliminating competition in the utility sector and paving the way for higher rate hikes for Wisconsinites. 

Americans for Prosperity – Wisconsin (AFP-WI) State Director Megan Novak made the following statement:

“Today, our legislators sided with utility companies over hardworking ratepayers like you and me, without even a second of debate. Their approval of a ‘right of first refusal’ law doubles down on government monopolies, ends competitive bidding, and guarantees even higher utility bills many Wisconsinites cannot afford.

“Far too many Wisconsinites are already grappling with the consequences of rising energy costs, but today’s vote robbed ratepayers of much needed relief. Our legislators tilted the field in favor of crony capitalism and against the best interest of Wisconsinites.”
