After a series of controversies, Arizona Corporation Commissioners are considering what ethics policies should be in place for the elected officials and staff who regulate utilities.

The commission has no ethics policy but is guided by various laws and state administrative codes that pertain to how they conduct open meetings and interact with those they regulate.

Commissioner Boyd Dunn initiated the proceedings in hopes of developing a commission-specific code of ethics. First was a review of utility commissions in other states.

“Not too many commissions have a code of ethics,” Dunn said. “I’ve been very disappointed.”
