  • Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton vetoed a bill that would have removed the Minnesota Public Utility Commission’s authority to settle certain electric utility disputes between cooperatives and coop customers, including billing disputes regarding customer installation of renewable energy sources. The bill was passed by the state senate last week and, if approved, would have vested dispute settlement authority in a third-party mediator.
