This topic was suggested in an effort to analyze the statutes that establish the organization and structure of the Public Service Commission. This would include options for replacing the five-member elected commission with an appointed commission, terms of office, vacancies, and use of districts. In 2003 Governor Martz appointed an Energy Consumer Protection Task Force. The task force examined the PSC's organizational structure and the PSC's overall authority. This study would reexamine the work completed in 2003.
The ETIC dedicated .05 FTE to this review. The committee reviewed the existing statutes that outline the organizational structure of the PSC and discussed options for transitioning to a new structure. The ETIC did not pursue related legislation.
