48/50. That’s an on-base percentage of .960. Or a 96% free-throw percentage. What if your football team’s kicker had made 48 out of his 50 field goals and it wasn’t even the playoffs yet? The point is: That’s a pretty darn good ratio.
In the few months following the passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, utility companies in 48 out of 50 states, and DC, have taken action to pass their federal tax savings on to their customers. This means more than 87 million customers across the country—so far—are set to see lower monthly utility bills.
Just this week, Alabama Power Company announced that it would be reducing its customers’ bills by $257 million this year. That’s 1.4 million Alabamians who will now be paying less each month for their utilities.
Washington Democrats may tell you these are just more “crumbs.” But a lower utility bill each month is a big deal for so many families. As Speaker Ryan said: “If you’re living paycheck-to paycheck, if you’re having a hard time just heating [or cooling] your house? This is real relief that's real tangible.”
