A bill advancing through both houses of the Arizona Legislature aims to clarify that state lawmakers, not utility regulators, have the authority to determine what clean energy goals are best for the state.
The body that regulates utilities, the Arizona Corporation Commission (ACC), voted 3-2 to remain neutral on the issue for now.
Meanwhile, the legislation has stirred debate statewide over who has constitutional authority to establish the standards. Hundreds of individuals and organizations have lined up on both sides.
