Florida Power & Light, the Sunshine State’s largest utility company, announced that following the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act, they will no longer bill customers for the cost of restoring electricity in the wake of Hurricane Irma. How much will customers be saving, you ask? $1.3 billion, or about $250 each. Despite Bill Nelson’s attempt to stop this from happening with his vote against tax reform, the good news just keeps coming for Floridians.
“FPL’s $1.3 billion in savings for customers is just the latest of the more than 100 companies to announce new investments, raises, savings or bonuses thanks to tax reform. With so many Floridians directly feeling the positive impact of the tax bill, will Senator Nelson ever admit that he was wrong to cast a partisan vote against it? Floridians need a senator who is on their side, not Chuck Schumer and Elizabeth Warren’s.” – RNC Spokesperson Ellie Hockenbury
