Lawmaker: Senate will reject utility board nominee
DES MOINES (AP) — Senate Democrats said Thursday that they will reject Gov. Terry Branstad’s nominee for the Iowa Utilities Board.
Sen. Matt McCoy, D-Des Moines, said the nominee, former Republican Rep. Nick Wagner, doesn’t have enough Democratic votes for the two-thirds majority needed for confirmation. McCoy said he believes senators will reject Wagner’s nomination on the floor next week.
The Iowa Utilities Board regulates rates and services of Iowa utilities. Board members are paid more than $113,000 a year.
