Representative Rosendale on Power Grid Reports

Today, Representative Rosendale released the following statement on reports of rolling blackouts in Montana

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Today, Representative Rosendale released the following statement on reports of rolling blackouts in Montana:

“My staff and I are closely monitoring the power situation in our state,” said Representative Rosendale. “The rolling blackouts today in Montana, as a result of strain on our shared power grid with other states, demonstrate the dangerous consequences of transitioning away from reliable fossil fuel-based power sources. It is obscene that Montana ratepayers are being forced to ration electricity in subzero temperatures a month into the Biden administration. I will continue to work with our delegation, the governor’s office, and other stakeholders to monitor the situation and provide any relevant updates. Thanks to all those who are working in tough conditions to keep our lights and heat on.”
