1307 Line PRC Reform

August 16, 2019 – Gene Grant and The Line opinion panel look at the possibility of reshaping New Mexico’s Public Regulation Commission, currently an elected body that regulates utilities, telecommunications, and motor carrier industries.

Tom Garrity, The Garrity Group PR
Laura Sanchez-Rivét, Affirm
Harry Van Buren, UNM Anderson School of Management
