Good example how government continues the flow of money on contracts with corruption long term?

I read a pamphlet that came with my bill that spoke of PG&E asking for an increase in rates due to the amounts that went up for them having to pay more to receive services from outside companies for us to receive utilities that they already paid for. However I've always heard that PG&E was not allowed to raise their rates to receive any monies back due to the San Bruno mishap. Please tell me where you received this information from? It kind of does then allow for PG&E to receive money to make the San Bruno repairs needed indirectly, if this is truly being allowed. Don't you just love how we have so little say so in our world to what happens. By the way, PG&E asks yearly to increase their rates from the governmental agency that governs them. Sorry forget their name at the moment.
