National Press Club Event:
Enron & Deregulation
Seminar Scheduled for Wednesday at Noon

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Enron presented itself as a poster child for electricity deregulation, so it is not surprising the company’s collapse has led some observers to conclude deregulation should be discontinued (or even reversed). But was Enron really a force for deregulation, or an advocate of a special brand of re-regulation designed to serve its own particular interests? And what, in any case, does Enron’s collapse mean for the future of electricity policy? Those are the issues to be addressed at a timely PFF seminar at the National Press Club on Wednesday, February 6 at Noon.
