PSC votes 3-0 to seek public comment on “Hire Mississippi” rule

Regulators seek more utility work for Mississippi companies

Mississippi regulators want utilities to do more to hire companies based in the state, proposing an administrative rule that would require regulated private utilities to keep lists of interested companies and notify them of contracting opportunities.

The Public Service Commission voted 3-0 Thursday to seek public comment on the “Hire Mississippi” rule. Though it would encourage utilities to consider Mississippi firms, it would not require them to set aside any work for in-state companies.
