Grand jury to investigate BPU over alleged rate-fixing

Mark Wiebe reports it'll start up in March. T.J. Reardon -- who lost a race for a BPU seat -- brought it using the petition method. (See, you can use it for something other than abortion investigations!)

Among other things, Reardon alleges that the utility is fixing its rates, that it misappropriated funds when several employees and board members racked up excessive credit-card expenses and that it failed to report federal clean-air violations to the Environmental Protection Agency — an allegation that appeared in The Star last March.
