The MSBA's Public Utilities Law Section Presents


Annual Meeting & Presentation by Public Utilities Commission Chair, Beverly Jones Heydinger

MPUC: Looking to the Future

Join us on Wednesday, May 15 for the Section's 2012-13 Annual Meeting and Lunch with the Commissioners, which will include a presentation by Minnesota Public Utilities Commission Chair, Beverly Jones Heydinger. The Commission has been extremely busy since Chair Heydinger’s appointment nearly one year ago and there appears to be no let-up in sight. Chair Heydinger will provide a brief look back at the eventful 10 months since her appointment to the Commission, followed by a more in-depth look at the many challenges and issues that lie ahead.

Ms. Heydinger was appointed Chair of the Public Utilities Commission (MPUC) in July of 2012, after serving as an Administrative Law Judge for thirteen years during which she presided in a number of MPUC cases, including certificate of need, route permit and utility rate proceedings. Prior to her service as an ALJ, Chair Heydinger served for 21 years in the Minnesota Attorney General's Office, including an eight year period as Deputy Attorney General of the Public and Human Resources Section. Chair Heydinger is a member of the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) and its Committee on Energy Resources and the Environment. She is also an Adjunct Professor at William Mitchell College of Law, a member of the Minnesota State Bar Association, Minnesota Women Lawyers, and the Board of Directors of the YWCA of St. Paul.

The Section will also conduct its annual meeting. As part of the annual meeting, the section will elect new officers and council members for the 2013-2014 term. Click here to view the slate of candidates.
