“Assembly Bills 726 and 813 will not move forward this year. After several months of questions and reviews of the ISO studies, including an informational hearing of the Assembly Committee on Utilities & Energy, there has been constructive dialogue on the process that the ISO should utilize in further consideration of regionalization. It’s important to recognize that these bills did not authorize regionalization of the grid. The bills established the next steps for the ISO to follow. But there is still more to discuss starting with the role of the Legislature in review of any proposed governance structure of a new ISO. We will continue our work on the issues over the fall and likely revisit it in the second half of this two-year session.”
