Culver requests delay in Alliant rate hike

Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) --  Governor Chet Culver has written a letter to Interstate Power and Light, the parent company of Alliant Energy, asking them to delay a proposed rate increase.

Culver wants Iowans to have the opportunity to give their input at a public hearing.

Alliant Energy plans to increase electrical rates by 12 to 18 percent.

Culver argues that due to the economic recession, now is not the time to impose rate increases on Iowans, school districts and businesses that are already struggling with making ends meet.
