Whereas, South Carolina Electric and Gas Company (SCE&G), a subsidiary of SCANA, and the United States Department of Energy signed an agreement on August 8, 1995, which allows for the privatization of the Savannah River Sites's electric, steam generation, and transmission facilities, which will result in new business for SCE&G and savings for the federal government; and
Whereas, SCE&G and Suburban Propane, another subsidiary of SCANA, are meeting the natural gas and propane requirements of many of the state's residential and commercial customers; and
Whereas, SCANA and its subsidiaries have performed exceptionally well in meeting the electric and gas utility, oil and gas exploration, telecommunications, energy marketing, and public transportation needs of its customers for many years; and
