    Inside E Street [#4004] Power Play Guests: Tyson Slocum, director of Public Citizen Energy Program; Ken Malloy, Executive Director of CRISIS & energy markets. The deregulation of electric utilities became a hot-button issue in the late 90s, with many states allowing companies to operate in the open market.
