'^^ tHt SRMOJPORT PACTS FREEPORT, TEXAS, WgO., DECEMBER). W> P«y K)ft State utility commission opposes cost pass-through AUSTIN (AP) - The state public utility commission sa^ it has learned that two electric companies are illegally adding- or planning to add-to consumers' bills the assessment they are required to pay for the commission's upkeep. It indicated there might be others. The commission said it received a consumer complaint against Southwester Public Service Co. of Amarillo and a voluntary disclosure from Houston Lighting and Power. Garrett Morris, chairman, issued a statement in which Erwin and commission member George Cowden concurred. "It has come to my attention that certain utilities which will eventually come under the jurisdiction of this commission have already, are planning to, or are considering passing on to their ultimate consumers a rate increase equal to the assessment they are required to pay under the provisions of the Public Utility Regulatory Act of 1975," Morris said The assessment is one- sixth of one per cent of the companies' gross revenues. Morris said a utility would be violating its rate schedule unless (he appropriate regulatory body—in most cases city governments — approved RIVER'S END FIREMEN SET FISH FRY The River's End Volunteer Fire Department will hold a fish fry Saturday, Dec. 13, from U a.m. to 7 p.m. in the community's new fire station on FM 2918 near the mouth of the San Bernard River.

''The commission lacks jurisdiction presently to net in this matter, but It is my opinion that is an improper pass-through," Morris said.
