Democrats at the North Carolina legislature say Duke Energy should be forced to move all of its coal ash to lined landfills away from water and make shareholders — not customers — pay for the cleanup.

House and Senate Democrats unveiled Thursday the framework of a bill they intend to introduce when the General Assembly reconvenes in May. They want Republicans in charge of the legislature to join them given last month's coal ash pond rupture along the Dan River.

Rep. Pricey Harrison of Greensboro is the chief author of the proposal, which also would repeal a 2013 provision critics say makes it harder to contain groundwater contamination at a waste dump.

Republican leaders on environmental issues said this week they're collecting more information before deciding the steps to take.
