PUBLIC UTILITY REGULATION
UTILITY COST REDUCTION BONDS
61-1601. Legislative intent. It is the intent of the legislature in enacting this chapter to authorize the public utilities commission to approve certain cost reduction charges or rates as a method of financing or refinancing costs incurred or to be incurred by electric and gas utilities that will accrue benefits to Idaho consumers through reduced utility rates. The legislature believes that this type of securities legislation is in the public interest but should not be considered as endorsement of, or intended to provide, a mechanism for restructuring of the utility industry in the state of Idaho.
