Alabama AG talks about utility rates

— MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Alabama's attorney general isn't getting involved on whether the Public Service Commission should have a formal review of rates for some of the state's largest utilities.

PSC member Terry Dunn sent a letter to Attorney General Luther Strange seeking his help in getting a formal review of utility rates for Alabama Power, Alabama Gas and Mobile Gas. Dunn turned to the attorney after the other PSC members decided to hold informational hearings on the three utilities rather than formal rate reviews.

Strange told WSFA-TV( ) that it's the PSC's job to set its own procedures and then do its job to make sure rates are reasonable. Strange says his office is keeping a close eye on the informational hearings because his office represents consumers.
