Current Bill Summary

SB 67 - This act provides for the election of Public Service Commissioners, with one from each of the nine congressional districts. Members shall have a salary equal to one and one-half times that of the General Assembly (or $43,500 per year). The Commissioners serve four-year terms, except the first ones elected are staggered, with even-numbered districts serving two-year terms. Currently Public Service Commissioners are appointed and serve six-year terms. Any current commissioner would serve until his term expires, which would overlap with the new nine-member commission.
