Correct....does that mean that the rural taxpayers in eastern Washington can shut off the electricity they provide at below cost to western Oregon and Washington?

BPA doesn’t even pay PILT payments to counties where their dams are located unlike other Federal agencies.

Rural internet is a small price for urban areas to pay for the environmental and economic damage caused by Federal dams and wind programs to rural communities.

While we are talking about libraries, did you know you can stream free movies with a library card?



https://resources.overdrive.com/libr...reaming-video/ (apparently low def, good for a cell phone screen).

You'll have to check this out. As I pointed out in the top post, my county does not have a library.
