 Lt. Governor’s Office, Mayor Baldelli-Hunt to Host Energy-Shopping Info Session in Woonsocket

 

WOONSOCKET, RI -- On Thursday, August 31st at 1:00 p.m., Lt. Governor Dan McKee’s Office will partner with Woonsocket Mayor Lisa Baldelli-Hunt to host an Empower RI information session at the Woonsocket Harris Public Library to help ratepayers learn to safely shop for electric suppliers and save on their electric bills.

 

During the information session, members of Lt. Governor McKee’s staff and the Mayor will be available to answer questions about Empower RI (www.ri.gov/EmpowerRI), an energy-shopping website McKee helped launch in 2016. Staff members will also demonstrate how ratepayers can switch their supplier online and potentially circumvent National Grid’s rate increase set to go into effect on October 1st.

 

The session is free and open to the public. Residents wishing to learn more are asked to bring their most recent electric bills to the session between 1:00 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. in the library’s first floor conference room.

 

Over the next few weeks, the lieutenant governor’s office will partner with municipal leaders to host daytime and evening Empower RI information sessions across the state.

The first of two House immigration reform bills is going down in flames. A vote on a more moderate bill was originally scheduled, today but is being postponed until tomorrow. Republican leaders say they want to give members a little more time to read the second bill       President Trump says he is ordering federal agencies and departments to expedite efforts to reunite migrant children and their families. Talking at the White House today, Trump said everyone was bothered by pictures of children who've been separated from their parents. After a huge public outcry, President Trump reversed the separation policy in an executive order yesterday. Meanwhile, First Lady Melania Trump is visiting a border facility where migrant children are being held in Texas.       San Francisco Police might be getting close to cracking a 1970s serial killer case. Investigators tell "CNN" they are about to release an updated sketch of the suspect in at least five and possibly as many as 14 murders that terrorized the gay community. The killer was nicknamed "The Doodler" because he would charm gay men by drawing sketches of them on bar napkins before he murdered them.        A new study from the Center for Disease Control says tobacco-free policies are on the rise at U.S. colleges and universities. The study, which was done in partnership with the American Nonsmokers' Rights Foundation, found that the number of campuses who are smoke or tobacco free has more than doubled between 2012 and 2017. Researchers say the policies help prevent deaths from smoking and secondhand exposure.       The Minnesota Vikings are hosting a summit to highlight the inclusion of LGBTQ athletes. Today's event will take place at the team's practice facility. LGBTQ athletes will take part in discussion panels. Among the names in attendance will be Olympic diver Greg Louganis, triathlete Chris Mosier and former NFL defensive tackle Esera Tuaolo.        Disney is testing a concept that would charge visitors by the hour to enjoy the park. California Adventure's highly-anticipated Pixar Pier is opening a day early on Friday for dedicated fans who pay 299-dollars, or 50-bucks an hour, to get in. The "Wall Street Journal" reports that the sneak peek party is to see if people would pay a premium to avoid crowds.
