Governor Makes Appointment to Public Service Commission

Feb 08, 2019

On Friday, Governor Gretchen Whitmer appointed former state representative Dan Scripps to the Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC). He fills the vacancy created by Rachel Eubanks, who was recently appointed State Treasurer. Mr. Scripps currently serves as the Midwest policy program director for Energy Foundation. Prior to that he worked at the Michigan Energy Innovation Business Council and the Institute for Energy Innovation. He holds a B.A. in Political Science from Alma College and a J.D. from the University of Michigan. His appointment is subject to the advice and consent of the Senate.

The MPSC is comprised of three commissioners who are tasked with overseeing safety, access, and reliability of energy and telecommunication services in Michigan. The public service commission also has the power to hear and pass upon all matters pertaining to the regulation of public utilities, including light and power companies, whether private, corporate, or cooperative; water, telegraph, oil, gas, and pipeline companies; motor carriers; private wastewater treatment facilities; and all public transportation and communication agencies other than railroads and railroad companies.
