All U.S. NARUC member states were invited to participate in the survey and responses were received from 38 Commissions: Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, Nebraska, New Jersey, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas, U.S. Virgin Islands, Vermont, Washington, West Virginia, and Wyoming.
Some responses represent a consensus view, others were the perspective of one commissioner or member of the staff. We specifically asked for references and links to supporting policies and regulations, with the hope that these references might prove useful to other commissioners and interested industry parties. A large number of commissions provided those links, they are very helpful, and we are very grateful. Opinions expressed without attribution are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect those of the participants or of NARUC.
