Public Utility Commission audit

The Legislative Audit Committee approved a full performance audit of the state’s Public Utility Commission. The Senate Auditor's office will conduct the audit.

Sen. Scott Renfroe and Sen Steve King requested the audit. King says recent actions of the PUC triggered the request.

“The PUC should be acting as a guardian of public interest to ensure Colorado consumers receive high quality and reasonably priced services,” said King. “Questions have risen in the legislature, public and media about some of their recent actions and these issues must be addressed.”

The audit will ask if the PUC has established and implemented "adequate policies and procedures to ensure the PUC Commissioners’ regulatory and decision-making activities are transparent and comply with state laws, regulations, and governance standards." It will also investigate whether or not the PUC has "adequate processes and controls in place to ensure P.U.C. Commissioners’ expenditures are reasonable, appropriate, for allowable purposes, and in the best interests of the state."[3]

Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in Colorado

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.

Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of Colorado scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.

Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
