    What can be done differently when winter storms knock out power to thousands?

    The Pennsylvania House of Representatives Consumer Affairs Committee hearing is dealing with how emergencies are dealt with in the Keystone State.

    Consumer Affairs Committee chairman Rep. Robert Godshall (R-Montgomery) scheduled Thursday’s meeting to “focus on electric utility storm preparation and response to power outages caused by this winter’s snow and ice storms.”

    Representatives from PECO, PPL Energy and First Energy will give testimony in Harrisburg.

    Tree trimming and management policies will also be discussed, according to Godshall.
