State Senate to get Corporation Commission Task Force Bill

The State Senate is the next stop for a bill creating a task force to study the effectiveness of the Oklahoma Corporation Commission.

House Bill 1377, already passed in the State House won approval in a Senate Committee.

As OK Energy Today reported last month, the House gave unanimous approval to the bill that would create the “Twenty-first Century Corporation Commission Task Force.”

But as Sean Voskuhl, state Director of the AARP said, “This task force looks, you know, kind of shady. Doesn’t really pass the smell test.”

It’s what he said in an interview with News 9’s Dana Hertneky.

What concerns him is the lack of consumer representation on the 14-member task force proposed by Rep. Weldon Watson, author of the measure. The makeup of the task force would include legislators and those industries regulated by the Corporation Commission.
