Regulators nix Mississippi Power push to exclude testimony

JACKSON, MS (AP) – Regulators have again denied a request by Mississippi Power Co. to narrow proceedings over how much customers should pay for a power plant.

The Mississippi Public Service Commission, voting 3-0 Tuesday, mostly rejected a request by the unit of Atlanta-based Southern Co. to exclude testimony concerning the Kemper County power plant.

Mississippi Power said testimony filed by Public Utilities Staff experts exceeded the proceeding’s scope or improperly included information the staff previously didn’t disclose.
