Support HB1054 for the Prohibition of the Disconnection of Certain Utilities During Disasters or Emergencies!

We urge you to contact your delegate and tell them to support House Bill 1054 that declares disconnection prohibition for certain utilities.

HB1054 prohibits gas, electric, and water providers from disconnecting customers for outstanding payments for the first 30 days when a public health emergency is declared.

HB1054 also allows utilities to roll disconnection and reconnection fees into utility debt repayment plans to make restoring service more affordable for customers, and prohibits shut offs during peak hot and cold weather.

The NAACP, believes that individuals’ basic human rights of water, power, and broadband access should not be threatened by utility debt.
