Someone New is Watching the Utilities
In May, Nebraska joined the other states in the way natural gas utilities are regulated. The state's Public Service Commission's jurisdiction was extended to include regulatory authority over investor-owned natural gas systems.

Historically in the state, cities and villages regulated the rates for investor-owned utilities that provided natural gas to people within the town's boundaries. There was no local or state regulatory authority for rural natural gas users. Municipally-owned natural gas systems were regulated the same as locally-owned electric utilities: by city councils and village boards.

If you have complaints about your natural gas service or have questions about service or rate issues, contact Miles Halcomb at the Public Service Commission at 402.471.3101 or 800.526.0017. The Commission's web site, http://www.psc.state.ne.us/home/NPSC/natgas/natgas.html, is also a source for information on natural gas issues.
