Senate Committee Approves PUC Appointee Coleman

The Senate Consumer Affairs and Professional Licensure Committee unanimously reported out the nomination of Public Utility Commissioner John Coleman for a second term.

During the hearing, Coleman told the committee that the AEPS is having the intended effect and he is not necessarily a advocate of increasing standards; the PUC is ready to work with municipalities in implementing Act 13, new Marcellus Shale legislation; and while the state has not fully transitioned to a fully competitive electric market, more than 1/3 of consumers had switched to alternative suppliers.
