We Need Your Help to Stop the Spill

Water that could have produced electricity was spilled over eight Snake and Columbia River dams this year. Benton REA got a bill for $110,406 of the spill cost. Congressman Dan Newhouse and Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rogers support legislation to stop any future spill. Benton REA needs your help. Please ask your senators to keep electricity affordable and reliable.
