PSC has no authority over rural water system

Legislation that Gov. Phil Bryant has signed into law clarifies that the three-member elected Public Service Commission does not have authority over rural water associations.

Bryant signed Senate Bill 2322 this week.

The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports the bill includes an amendment by Rep. Jerry Turner, R-Baldwyn, to require the rural water associations’ meetings to be open to their customers and to require that the customers receive notice of meetings where boards of directors are elected.
