First Draft of Commission Code of Ethics Available for Review and Comment

PHOENIX — The Arizona Corporation Commission released its first draft of the Commission Code of Ethics seeking input from Corporation Commissioners and stakeholders. Commissioner Boyd Dunn serves as Chairman of the Ethics Committee and leads the effort to create the Code of Ethics.

“This draft is the culmination of months of review and careful consideration of our current laws and the laws and codes adopted by similar bodies throughout the country,” said Commissioner Dunn. “Specifically, this draft Code attempts to include those focused areas of concern forwarded by Commissioners during the workshops and in the docket.”

Commissioner Dunn initiated and led two workshops to discuss the creation of the Code of Ethics starting in August 2017. Dunn proposed a third workshop in early February to prepare a finalized version for the end of that month.

The initial draft is available on the Corporation Commission’s website, search 17-0079. Commissioner Dunn requests his fellow Commissioners, interested parties, and stakeholders review the preliminary draft and file responses in the docket on or before January 19, 2018.

Docket number: AU-00000E-17-0079
