Fort Worth Foots the Bill for Dallas Project

A Dallas bureau chief for one of the Houston papers once said that he had the easiest job in the world: all he had to do was look for stories that made Dallas look bad. You could use that same rationale for any Startlegram story about Dallas.

In today's S-T under the headline "We'll pay for Dallas project," we find out that electric ratepayers in Fort Worth and elsewhere will get stuck with part of the bill for a tourism and economic development project in Dallas because of a Texas Public Utility Commission agreed to take more than $12 million in construction costs for the burial of a new power line near downtown Dallas and pass those costs on to ratepayers statewide.
