Scott keeps Crist's appointees to PSC

TALLAHASSEE — Gov. Rick Scott is keeping all four of Gov. Charlie Crist's most recent appointees to the utility-regulating Florida Public Service Commission.

Scott announced the reappointments Friday, two days after withdrawing 154 Crist appointees to various panels and posts.

The commissioners will require Florida Senate confirmation. A fifth commissioner already is confirmed.

The current nominees replaced commissioners turned out by the Senate or a nominating panel after they rejected big rate increases sought by two power companies.
