Gov. Mike DeWine (R-Ohio) is asking for a new list of candidates to potentially chair the state's utilities regulatory agency. The former chair of the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio resigned after the FBI raided his home.
The list of possible successors to take over as chair of the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio has been narrowed to four. One will succeed Sam Randazzo, who resigned last month after a federal filing from FirstEnergy noting an improper $4 million payment to an entity associated with someone who became a state regulator.
Ohio's top utilities regulations official has resigned just days after FBI agents searched his home in an early morning raid. Gov. Mike DeWine (R-Ohio) announced the departure of PUCO Chair Sam Randazzo, thanking him for his service.
