Ya’ll probably aren’t surprised by this bill since it has been discussed on the backbench for a while. Annexation manipulation is a tactic used by municipality owned utilities with outside boundary customers. Some of these utilities are requiring a signature on an annexation agreement before service is given. S. 289, if passed, eliminates this strong-arm tactic. The rhyme annexation manipulation reminds me of that Saturday morning cartoon, “conjunction junction, what’s that function”. I’m not a poet, so any rhyme on this crime would be good. Help me out!
