As reported in the Arkansas News, House Bill 1895 passed in the Arkansas Senate Monday on a 26-7 vote after passing in the House last week with a definitive 91-0 vote. The bill now goes to the governor and if approved will allow the state Public Service Commission to review in separate proceedings a public utility’s request for additional energy supply and proposal for a new power plant. The bill developed out of ongoing litigation over the construction of a new power plant in Hempstead County. Opponents argue it will reduce the public notice period and opportunity to protest new plant construction projects while proponents point to the employment and tax benefits associated with the Hempstead County plant and similar projects aided by the proposed legislation.
