Benson Condemns BPU’s Approval of Verizon Rate Increase as a Tax Increase on SeniorsAssemblyman Daniel Benson on Tuesday condemned the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities (BPU) for approving a significant rate increase and the deregulation of Verizon's traditional landline service that will hit New Jersey residents who can least afford it the hardest.
Benson has been the lead sponsor of legislation (A-2459) that would have prevented Verizon from replacing a customer's landline service with wireless service without their consent.
