NH legislators agree on bill to protect heating fuel consumers
The bill limits when heating oil companies can advertise pre-paid contracts and makes failure to deliver heating fuel a violation under the state Consumer Protection Act.
The Republican-dominated, 2011-12 legislature did not include money in its budget to pay the communities in the compact.
Under the bill, 22 towns in the Merrimack and Connecticut flood control compacts would receive $542,672.
The bill limits when dealers can advertise and solicit customers for pre-buy contracts to between May 1 and Oct. 31.
The bill also requires dealers to register with the Secretary of State’s Office and file an annual report demonstrating how the company will satisfy its obligations to consumers.
