Snyder Shakes Up Michigan Energy Agency
There’s been a shakeup at the agency responsible for Michigan energy policy. People are being re-assigned as the agency’s leader leaves state government for the private sector.
Sources inside and outside the Snyder administration say the departure of Valerie Brader makes the timing right for a re-organization. Governor Rick Snyder has signed an executive order re-assigning staff to the state Public Service Commission. That’s the agency that regulates utilities in Michigan.
Nicholas Assendfelt is with the energy agency.
“It’s just a re-organization a little bit in terms of who’s under which umbrella, but the energy issues and missions are still our priority.”
