PSC Candidate Noonan: I'll Stop Deregulation

Pat Noonan is the public policy officer for AWARE.
Montana Legislature
Pat Noonan

Democratic candidate for the Public Service Commission Pat Noonan talks with MTPR Capitol Reporter Corin Cates-Carney.

Montana’s Public Service Commissioners have a lot of power. They regulate monopoly utility companies, meaning they have influence over people’s energy bills, as well as the environmental impact of Montana’s energy sources.

There are two contested seats on the five-member Public Service Commission this year. This week, we’re hearing from the three people running for one of the seats. Those people are Republican incumbent Roger Koopman, Democrat Pat Noonan and Independent Caron Cooper.

They’re running for the District 3 seat representing Southwest Montana.
