A proposal to make commissioners of the state’s utility regulation agency elected officials is under study in the state senate. Senator Doyle Childers of Reeds Springs thinks the constitution should be changed to make members of the Public Service Commission run for their offices, and to create more of them. He would like to see commissioners elected from each of the state’s nine congressional districts. His proposal comes at a time when the Commission has been criticized by some politicians for allowing higher heating bills this winter. But Childers says his proposal is not connected with that issue.
