Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) Chairman Andrew Giles Fay has been appointed Chairman of the National Association of Regulatory Utility Commissioners (NARUC) Committee on Critical Infrastructure. NARUC’s members include all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands. NARUC represents State Public Service Commissioners who regulate essential utility services, such as electricity, natural gas, telecommunications, water, and wastewater.
NARUC’s Critical Infrastructure Committee provides a forum for State regulators, in collaboration with their federal counterparts, to analyze solutions for our country’s utility infrastructure security and delivery concerns. As demonstrated many times during emergency and storm events, protection of the nation’s energy and telecommunications infrastructure is critical.
“I’m honored to receive this appointment and look forward to the opportunity to lead NARUC’s Committee on Critical Infrastructure,” said Chairman Fay. “With Florida’s active storm seasons, we have become a leader in planning and executing successful emergency preparedness and response efforts. I believe this experience will contribute to the Committee’s important work in protecting and restoring our nation’s energy grid.”
“The Association is grateful to Commissioner Fay for stepping up to take charge of this important committee to provide continuity and expert leadership,” said NARUC President Michael Caron.
In addition to serving on NARUC’s Critical Infrastructure Committee, Chairman Fay is a member of NARUC’s Subcommittee on Education and Research. Chairman Fay has substantial Legislative, Executive, and Judicial experience from a number of significant roles within State Government. He served as Assistant Attorney General and Special Counsel to Attorney General Pam Bondi where he advocated for the successful passage of more than a dozen significant pieces of legislation, most notably as the lead author and advocate of Florida’s Information Protection Act (FIPA).
