A Day at the Iowa Utilities Board
Don Tormey is Communications Manager and Anna Hyatt is Legislative Liaison at the Iowa Utilities Board.
The PUF team traveled to Des Moines, Iowa, the home of the Iowa Utilities Board, which got its start in 1878 as the Iowa Board of Railroad Commissioners, and later the Iowa State Commerce Commission.
PUF: Anna, what you do as the Board's Legislative Liaison?
Anna Hyatt: The Iowa Legislative session is part-time, mainly January through the end of April each year, and it is my job to track the bills that would affect IUB or that would affect the industry in general.
It is a time for me to meet all the legislators, introduce myself, let them know that I'm available to help them with their constituent concerns and any other questions that they may have. I also work with caucus staff.
PUF: Don, talk about communications.
