Utilities across the Pacific Northwest, including Flathead Electric Cooperative, are sounding off against draft recommendations for the future of the Columbia River Treaty, saying they haven’t been adequately represented in a process that could result in economic impacts for rate payers and the region.

The utilities present themselves as the Columbia River Treaty Power Group, an alliance that was formed in 2011 to evaluate the future of the treaty that could be terminated or modified in 2024. Any changes recommended for the treaty must be submitted by the Bonneville Power Administration and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers by the end of this year.

            After 50 years of sucking on their binky it's hard for utilities to develop a more sophisticated vocabulary.
