From the Missouri Times
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – Robert S. Kenney, Chairman of the Missouri Public Service Commission, announced today that he will step down from the Commission, effective August 7, 2015, following expiration of his six-year term.
Kenney was appointed to the Public Service Commission on July 29, 2009 by Governor Jay Nixon. He was unanimously confirmed by the Missouri Senate on January 10, 2010. He was named Chairman of the PSC by Governor Nixon on March 1, 2013.
“I want to thank Governor Nixon for the opportunity to serve on the Public Service Commission, first as a Commissioner and then as its Chairman. It has been an honor and a privilege,” said Kenney. “Since my appointment, we have worked proactively to enhance the quality of regulation at the Commission and I am especially proud of our efforts to increase consumer outreach and education. The business of providing utility services is undergoing a profound evolution. Challenges and opportunities associated with this evolution require an increased emphasis on consumer education and outreach. These challenges and opportunities also require continued examination of our regulatory processes and willingness to craft creative policy solutions to increasingly complex issues.”
