Municipal power advocates try to seal the deal in Albany

Listen to this story
A bill that would allow two dozen towns in St. Lawrence and Franklin counties to form a municipal power company is getting closer to passage. And local leaders are taking a bus to Albany today to try to push it over the finish line. The bill to create the North Country Power Authority is the product of a decade of work by the Alliance for Municipal Power. The bill has already passed the Senate. After clearing a key committee in the Assembly yesterday, it's now one committee away from a floor vote. Supporters believe it will pass. David Sommerstein reports.
