Trailop says... January 15, 2018 at 9:15 a.m.

So the new tax bill with a lower capital gains tax will not trickle down to the customer?

@Trailop: CAW is a publicly owned utility; it doesn't pay taxes, so there's no tax cut to "trickle down". In a sense, CAW's lack of a tax bill has been "trickling down" to LR residents since the 1930's and NLR residents since the 1950's (when those cities took over their water systems before merging them into CAW near the turn of the 21st century).

More specifically, CAW is a GOVERNMENT-owned utility, governed by a board appointed by the cities of Little Rock & North Little Rock. It's not "publicly owned" in the sense of on a stock exchange, like Entergy or Centerpoint Energy; the Arkansas Public Service Commission regulates them and is already looking into possible rate adjustments.
