Change in NYSPSC Leadership on Hold


Governor Andrew Cuomo nominated Audrey Zibelman to the New York State Public Service Commission (“PSC”) and she was recently confirmed by the New York State Senate.  It has been widely reported that she would be named Chair of the PSC.  The Albany Times Union is reporting that Ms. Zibelman will not be taking over in August as planned due to injuries suffered in a car accident, and that current PSC Chair Garry Brown will continue to serve as Chair until Ms. Zibelman can assume her position.

It is not clear what changes or initiatives Zibelman may have been planning, but it seems likely, given Brown’s holdover status, that there will be status quo in the interim.
