Power Firm Is Held in Contempt by State Panel

From Times Staff, Wire Reports

A state Senate committee voted unanimously Wednesday to hold Texas-based Reliant Energy Inc. in contempt for failing to comply with a demand to produce secret business records.

Reliant is one of seven power generators under investigation by the Senate committee for failing to obey a subpoena for documents the companies consider to be trade secrets or proprietary information.

Reliant attorney Charles J. Stevens said that compliance with the committee's demands potentially would expose the company's most secret information to its competitors.
