03/18/2014 ~ United States Representative (26th District) Joe Garcia recently took a group of Public Power utility executives from Florida on a personal tour of the U.S. Capitol. The Utility Board and representatives from Keys Energy Services (KEYS) traveled to Washington D.C last week to take part in the annual American Public Power Association (APPA) Legislative Rally.

Representative Garcia conducted the tour himself and took participants, including Utility Board member Barry Barroso and KEYS’ General Manager & CEO Lynne Tejeda, throughout the Capitol building – including on the House and Senate floors.

The Rally affords participants the opportunity to meet with members of the United States House of Representatives and Senate to discuss issues relevant to the Public Power Sector and KEYS’ customers.

Issues discussed during the 2014 Legislative Rally included: implementation of reasonable legislation regarding public power’s access to tax-exempt financing; utilities’ strong focus on grid security with a special emphasis on cyber security; and supporting climate challenge initiatives with timelines and targets that ensure a reliable and affordable energy supply.

APPA serves the nation’s more than 2,000 community and state-owned electric utilities that provide electricity to 47-million people.
