Public Service Commission

Common Cause Nebraska has discovered that 76% of campaign financing from identifiable donors for incumbent Nebraska Public Service Commissioners comes from the industries they regulate or people directly connected to those industries. This percentage varies by commissioner from a low of 52% to a high of 99%.

In short, the five commissioners Nebraskans depend on to ensure that their phone, natural gas, cable and other public services are safe and dependable, and that their rates are fair and equitable, campaign for office with funds provided by the same companies they are elected to regulate.
