A Day at the Iowa Utilities Board
Samantha Norris is General Counsel at the Iowa Utilities Board.
Bernardo Granwehr is Regulatory Law Manager at the Iowa Utilities Board.
Cecil Wright is Senior Attorney 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: Samantha, what is your role?
Samantha Norris: The role of general counsel at the Board is to first and foremost protect the Board and advise the Board on all matters.
One of the things I try to do with the help of the others in the agency is anticipating and heading off issues wherever possible and helping bring the teams together, using the expertise we have here at the Board to navigate all aspects of the issues that come before the Board.
