New Orleans Makes Small Steps Towards Recovery

Entergy New Orleans is walking back its request to raise electricity rates.

Entergy recently applied to the City Council to raise rates in Algiers by double-digits and in the rest of Orleans Parish by a smaller amount.

City Councilmembers reacted quickly, saying the request went too far.

Entergy officials said they're withdrawing their application because of City Council's response.
