Morita to be retained as PUC head

By 67AM KPUA News

Governor Neil Abercrombie has announced Hermina Morita will be kept on as chairwoman of the State Public Utilities Commission after her term ends on June 30.

Thursdays announcement ended speculation that began in February when Senate Consumer Protection Committee chairwoman Roz Baker said an Abercrombie staff member had told her that the Governor did not intend to reappoint Morita. More recently, it was disclosed that she and her husband were being investigated by the Board of Land and Natural Resources for allegedly building and operating an illegal Hanalei bed-and-breakfast.

But Abercrombie said the state is at a critical juncture in developing its clean energy future and the PUC needs stability.
