Re: Where are the details?

I'm failing to understand what is so awful about ensuring municipalities cover their expenses in an equitable manner.

Because they never do, they subsidize the deployment of large expensive over many years or decades. Dams, power plants, sewer systems, water systems are never paid for up front but instead pay for themselves over a very long time.

If the incumbents NEED money NOW then that's their problem, not the municipality they don't want to compete with.

I have yet to read proposed legislation that requires municipalities to front 100% of the capital for an infrastructure build.
