Bank of Guam’s Dave B. Guerrero has become the newest member of the Public Utilities Commission following the House of Representatives’ confirmation of his nomination yesterday afternoon. This comes almost a week after the Senate also confirmed him last Wednesday.
The governor’s nominees to PUC require Senate and House confirmation.
At yesterday’s session, House members debated whether or not to include a question-and-answer about Guerrero as part of a committee report on his nomination. In the end, members voted to use the material only as a reference.
By a vote of 18-0 with two absences, the House adopted the joint reports of the committees on Judiciary and Governmental Operations and the Public Utilities, Transportation and Communications recommending Guerrero’s confirmation.
Adoption of the joint committee report essentially means the House confirmed Guerrero.
The newest PUC member is currently a Bank of Guam assistant vice president, and has been in banking and finance business since 2005 in California, New York, Guam, and the CNMI.
Gov. Eloy S. Inos appointed him to serve as a PUC member on June 21.
PUC has regulatory oversight of all utilities entities in the CNMI including telecommunications, power, water, wastewater, and cable television.
