Thank you to those of you who reached out to your Kansas House members via phone, email and social media asking for their support for lower electricity rates.
Unfortunately, despite thoughtful remarks from the well-supporting Executive Reorganization Order 46 from Representative Gartner, Carmichael, Moore and Horn, the House voted 74-44 to keep the Kansas Energy Office at the Kansas Corporation Commission.
You can watch the debate by rewinding the live streaming or by watching it after it’s been archived tomorrow.
Here’s a link to the video on Youtube.
The good news is that Governor Kelly appointed a terrific Kansas Corporation Commissioner, Susan Duffy, and has another appointment very soon. We will continue to advocate for the KCC to scale up the State Energy Office staff so they can manage the important process of creating a much needed state energy plan.
Here is how the vote went today, please thank your Representative for their vote as appropriate:
