July 2010: VICTORY FOR RI HOMEOWNERS

On July 21, NRF joined preservation organizations throughout the state in celebrating a victory for Rhode Island homeowners. Governor Carcieri signed a law requiring National Grid to consult with property owners before installing or relocating gas meters.
While this might seem like a common courtesy, it resulted only after a year long battle with the utility giant. Rhode Is-land is the only state to enact legislation protect-ing both historic and non-historic homeowners.
