Today on Radioactivity we discuss how Representative Dwight Dudley and St. Petersburg Councilwoman-Elect Darden Rice were joined by local residents at a press conference to call on Governor Scott to support legislation to end a bailout for Duke Energy that will cost Florida ratepayers billions of dollars. They urged the Governor to lobby members of the state legislature vigorously to repeal a tax that charges customers for nuclear energy they will not receive. Host Rob Lorei speaks with Neal Waltmire the communication director of Florida For All a grassroots organization about the utility tax that takes money away from local schools, small businesses and middle class ratepayers.

Duke Energy is immensely rich and needs no bailout. Stealing from the poor taxpayers is immoral, especially when that money was to go to education and SMALL businesses!



This is wrong



stop it



stop it



I dread receiving the bill every month. No help from Florida citizens. They can afford their bills, we can't.



I hope they don't get buy with this. Living in Southwestern Ohio, they seem to have plenty of money. They are talking about raising rates here. I better look into it a little more. They promised lower rates, sued our village and school district to pay less in taxes.....and won! Rates continue a steady climb. Greed!

Start a petition! This is ridiculous along with him calling himself republican and accepting common core and the list could go on!



Let's ALL power down for a day...don't open your fridge too long unless you have the wood to smoke the meats!!(then you can live ALTOGETHER WITHOUT ELECTRICITY!!!



Duke and Also Stop or eliminate the Auto pip,the Insurance company,s Rise And Rise with the Excuse of fraud,So for that we paid taxes to the FLORIDA LAW EMFORSCEMENT TO INVESTIGATE FRAUD,WE DONT HAVE TO PAID FOR OTHER WRONG DOING.



It is crazy that we pay for them to make money. That money should go to subsidize solar and wind energy so we no longer need Duke energy except for minimal usage.
