Should the Governor Appoint PRC Commissioners?


Voters in November will decide whether to change the Public Regulation Commission (PRC) from an elected five-member commission to an appointed three-member commission. Voting in the affirmative would also create a nominating committee with the responsibility to compile a list of candidates submitted to the Governor who would appoint members from the list, with the consent of the state Senate, to serve on the PRC. No more than two commissioners could be members of the same political party. Commissioners would serve six-year terms and be limited to two terms, as they are presently.
