On the February 27, 2013 LPSC Business and Executive meeting, Commissioner Eric Skrmetta set the tone by refusing to allow public testimony on the issue of the Energy Efficiency rules, and instead angered numerous attendees. By violating the public’s right to speak, AAE, the Sierra Club, and the Louisiana Environmental Action Network decided to take action and file a lawsuit against the LPSC to hold Skrmetta accountable for his actions. Through this lawsuit, the LPSC will be held responsible for upholding its duties, which includes always giving a voice to the public. Attached are the press release and the formal petition for the case.
