House OKs veto power over Corporation commission

On a 31-27 margin the House voted Monday to give lawmakers the power to veto rules of the Arizona Corporation Commission.

HB 2789 is aimed at decisions by the commission to require utilities to obtain 15 percent of their power from renewable sources like solar, wind and geothermal by 2025. Rep. Debbie Lesko, R-Glendale, said the energy policy of the state should be set by the Legislature.

The vote comes despite legal opinions issued by attorneys for both the Legislature and the commission that it would be an illegal infringement on the constitutional powers of the regulators.

Lesko effectively conceded as much, promising to make changes to the measure when it is now considered by the Senate.
