TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida Gov. Rick Scott is reappointing two current members of the Public Service Commission to new terms.
Scott on Friday announced he was reappointing both Art Graham and Ronald Brise to four year terms starting in January.
The five-member commission regulates investor-owned electric, natural gas and water utilities.
Graham is a former Jacksonville Beach city councilman who was first appointed by former Gov. Charlie Crist. Brise, who is the current chairman, is a former legislator who was appointed by Crist as well.
Graham back in 2011 pushed for the resignation of the PSC's executive director. Media reports at the time contended Graham made the move at the urging of lobbyists representing Florida Power & Light.
Those who are appointed to the PSC are paid $130,036 a year
