CA Governor to Support PUC Ethics Reforms
Gov. Jerry Brown has announced his support of sweeping reforms to the California Public Utilities Commission (PUC). The overhaul comes as the PUC faces accusations of back-channel dealings and calls for change to create more transparency and independence from utility companies. The reform package will require people lobbying the PUC to register as lobbyists and ban former utility executives from serving on the PUC for two years post-employment.
