      "The DC Public Service Commission will have an open meeting where they will be making a
      determination in granting the Office of People's Council emergency petition for DC Consumers to
      opt-out of "smart" meters.    The DCPSC will be looking at this matter on Thursday, May
      9, 2013 at 10:00am -7th floor.  The location is 1333 H Street, N.W.
      This is formal case 1056."

      Note: PEPCO and other electric utility customers in Maryland can opt-out and customers in many parts of the country including California, Michigan, Maine, Vermont, Nevada, Parts of Hawaii and other jurisdictions can opt-out.  Interestingly Idaho Power has decided to avoid the "wireless" debate by going wired: http://www.idahopower.com/pdfs/newscommunity/News/CustomerConnection/201103.pdf

      An interesting question for the DC Public Service Commission, which is in its 17th month without a third Commissioner, is what science will they consider sufficient to allow a person to opt-out?  Why isn't a letter from a customer's Doctor sufficient or the below report?  

      The Health Service Agency of Santa Cruz County, California has issued the following report: http://emfsafetynetwork.org/wp-content/uploads/2009/11/Health-Risks-Associated-With-SmartMeters.pdf 

      Thank you.
