SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Gov. Jerry Brown has appointed more members to the bodies that oversee California’s utilities and energy.
On Tuesday, Brown appointed Mike Florio and Catherine Sandoval to the Public Utilities Commission, and Robert Weisenmiller and Nancy Ryan to the California Energy Commission.
Florio is an attorney with a San Francisco-based utility reform advocacy group that has publicly criticized regulators. Sandoval is an associate professor at Santa Clara University School of Law.
Weisenmiller has served on the energy commission since last year, while Peterman is also on the board of directors for the utility reform group.
All the positions have a salary of $128,109 and require state Senate approval.
Last week, Brown appointed PUC commissioner Nancy Ryan to executive director.
