The article reports on the finance of public-private infrastructures in Massachusetts. According to the report, the rising fuel costs and electricity rates have prompted the communities in the state to join a number of nationwide towns and cities looking into acquiring, or reacquiring power systems. The existing law of the state has made it impractical for municipalities to purchase the investor-owned utilities that serve them and that has got state lawmakers contemplating change on Beacon Hill.
