9:06 pm
funded thanks to rate payers, you. but that could change along with leadership at the agency that regulates utilities, the california public utilities commission. heather ishimaru explains. >> pg&e employees pensions are currently immune to losses even when financial losses plummet because the utilities have the customers pick up the cost of presentations and that also means making up for losses. southern california edison is asking for a 7.5% rate increase for 2012 partly to cover its pension fund losses. pg&e says it hasn't asked for an increase to cover pension costs since 2006. >> i don't think we want to begrudge the utility workers their pensions. >> reporter: suggests going forward it is time to consider 4 o 01 k's instead, a move state legislators are already considering for public sector employees. >> for any enterprise that
