TEXAS CLARIFICATION. Thank you for the article, "From Statehouse to Your House: The Electric Competition Debate in Texas" (May 15, 1998 issue).

Please allow me to correct one point in that article, however. In discussing variations of distribution costs among utilities serving "deep East" Texas (a region of the state), the author believed me to be referring to Deep East Texas Electric Coop (a utility). Deep East Texas Electric Coop has one of the lowest distribution costs in the state; other neighboring coops in "deep East" Texas are somewhat higher.

Since these member-owned utilities are largely self-regulating, I believe accurate information about discrete costs will allow member-owners to hold utility management accountable in a far more effective way than we at the PUC can do.
