Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Wednesday) | Listen to this entire show:
Our next guest is a former state legislator and now the chair of the Florida Public Service Commission - Nancy Argenziano.
Yesterday she called on Gov. Charlie Crist to disband the state panel that helps pick members of the utility regulating board or maybe even eliminate the PSC itself and “have the legislature do what it essentially does now anyway: dictate results.”
Consumer advocates raised questions about the PSC nominating council last week after it refused to include Argenziano and Commissioner Nathan Skop in a group of 18 candidates who will be interviewed for their seats.
The nominating council recently recommended eight finalists for two other open PSC seats that Crist is expected to fill by July 15. Argenziano urged Crist not to choose from that pool in a commentary published Tuesday in Florida newspapers.
