Pretty good ,al , no they would not have been proactive

They just got caught. Many people knew the coal ash was a problem. Many people know that these monopolies hide lots of problems. Many people know that governments hide problems and manipulate issues in their favor versus the public, yes local governments ,including our own GUC. Yet nothing is done.i recall an editorial of the DR that you swallowed the GUC nonsense on the rate decrease hook,line and sinker.
