ANCHORAGE (AP) -- Gov. Tony Knowles has reappointed Jim Strandberg to a full six-year term on the Regulatory Commission of Alaska.
The former Fairbanks resident works now out of the commission's Anchorage office. He fills a seat on the panel set aside for a registered engineer.
Strandberg initially was appointed to a one-year term.
The commission was created in May 1999 to replace the sunsetted Alaska Public Utilities Commission. The panel is responsible for the regulation of public utilities by certifying that the providers of utility and pipeline services provide safe and adequate services at reasonable rates.
Members of the commission are paid $77,800 per year.
