PSC Members Visit

Posted: Updated:

Two of the three current members of the North Dakota Public Service Commission visited Minot this week.

Julie Fedorchak and Dr. Brian Kalk were guests at the Chamber of Commerce's Governmental Affairs committee meeting.

The two say they believe the state is dealing well with the crush of development related to the oil industry.

From new pipelines to electrical lines to other utility needs, they say the volume of work at the PSC has been enormous.

But both say they believe the state has a reliable system to allow the public to influence decisions while providing stable rules for regulated industries to follow.

(Dr. Brian Kalk, Public Service Commission) "One of the things that really helps us is the companies do a good job filing their applications, our staff does a good job reviewing, we do a good job of getting public input, so we're able to keep up. The big thing is there's a process in place, we've got good people, and we just work hard."

(Julie Fedorchak, Public Service Commission) "The public can be involved in our process, the can come to our meetings - we notice them widely, they're completely open and people can come and tell us how they feel. That combined with the very certain process the businesses know they have to follow to meet the laws of the state...that combination makes for orderly development."

All three PSC members will be in Minot on Thursday, holding a hearing on the proposed Sandhill Pipeline project across the state.
