Larson Statement on Call to Investigate CL&P

Statement

Location: Hartford, CT

Congressman Larson released the following statement on the remaining members of the Connecticut delegations decision to call for an investigation of CL&P:

"My primary focus right now is to make sure everyone in CT gets power as soon as possible and to ensure that the right entities are coordinating to get my constituents power and heat especially before this cold weekend.

"There will be ample time after power restoration and recovery efforts are complete to examine what went wrong when the power went out. At the appropriate time I plan to support a full investigation, that looks at the entire process- from the federal agencies coordination all the way down to the performance and preparation of CL&P.

"Connecticut has been slammed by Irene, Lee and now this freak October snowstorm. We must look at all levels of government participation and figure out how to better respond so that residents will never have to wait a week to get power back up and running.

"I support the spirit of the call for investigation and intend to do my part to look at what went wrong here and how to fix it as to ensure the response is faster and better coordinated next time, but right now, my objective and efforts are focused on getting the lights back on."
