  • COLETTE HONORABLE: FERC talk.
John Norris has announced his resignation as a member of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission and this has renewed talk about the possibility that Colette Honorable, chairman of the Arkansas Public Service Commission, could be appointed by President Obama to replace Norris.

Norris was reconfirmed in 2012 for a term expiring in 2017.

Honorable has not commented about talk of her potential appointment.

The FERC can be a big deal. It was a VERY big deal in the early 1980s when it saddled Arkansas with paying for part of the cost of the Grand Gulf power plant in Mississippi. Entergy Arkansas operates independently now and there have been many other changes in the regulation system since then.
