Based on the headlines, it would be easy to think that the Maine Public Utilities Commission spends all of its time addressing issues regarding CMP. But the PUC impacts the lives of Mainers in many other ways.  It regulates electric, gas, telephone and water utilities as well as setting rates that are mandated to be just and reasonable for all ratepayers. The Chairman of the PUC and the Manager of the MPUC Customer Assistance Division join us to answer questions about the work the PUC does and the utilities they regulate.
