The Long Island Power Authority "desperately" needs structural changes to address lingering questions about its high rates and debt load, lagging customer satisfaction, costly storm response, and billing problems, a committee of experts and activists told the Suffolk Legislature Tuesday.

The LIPA Oversight Committee, a bipartisan group formed by the legislature in 2010 to examine the utility's practices, issued a 191-page report on its two-year effort, much of it critical of LIPA. A copy of the report can be found at www.lipaoversight.org.
