Get the Flash Player to see this player.

PG&E, which says it's coping with rising costs stemming from last year's San Bruno pipeline disaster, today reported a 23 percent drop in its first quarter profit. It also cut its earnings outlook for the rest of the year.

Now, the California Public Utilities Commission's Division of Ratepayer Advocates has declared PG&E's efforts to introduce a special charge on residential electric bills illegal -- and is urging commissioners to vote down the proposal when they meet May 26h.

Host Stephanie Martin talks with Dave Ashuckian, the division's deputy director.
