Fire Victims & Ratepayers Above Investors' Interests

Tuesday, January 29, 2019

Senator Jim Nielsen (R-Tehama), who represents the Town of Paradise and the surrounding communities devastated by Camp Fire, issued the following statement regarding PG&E's bankruptcy:

"Camp Fire victims continue to suffer. This fire killed 86 people, burned thousands of homes, and displaced thousands of families. The recovery process is just beginning.

"My priority has been and continues to be the fire victims.

"It is imperative that these bankruptcy proceedings are monitored closely to ensure that fire victims are prioritized and residents continue to receive reliable energy.

"Investors' interests should not be placed above fire victims and ratepayers."
