Commissioner Tobin Welcomes New Policy Advisor


PHOENIX — The Office of Commissioner Andy Tobin is pleased to welcome Landon Stevens as its new Policy Advisor. Stevens comes to the Corporation Commission after serving as the Director of Policy for Strata Policy, a Utah-based think tank focusing on energy, environment, and public lands issues. Prior to his time in Utah, Stevens was the Policy Director at the Institute for Energy Research in Washington, D.C. In both roles, Stevens led teams in researching and analyzing the functions, operations, and regulation of energy markets.

In his role with the Corporation Commission, Stevens will be advising Commissioner Tobin on current policy initiatives and various cases before the Commission. Additionally, he will serve as Commissioner Tobin’s primary representative on the Corporation Commission’s Water Committee which is actively working on a more proactive approach to water loss policy. Stevens begins his new post September 5, 2017.

As a sixth generation Arizonan and grandson of former Arizona Senate President Stan Turley, Stevens is no stranger to issues facing the state. Stevens holds a bachelor’s degree in Communications from Brigham Young University and received a Master of Public Policy with a focus on energy policy from George Mason University.

Established by Article 15 of the state’s constitution, the Arizona Corporation Commission is responsible for the regulation of public utilities and the oversight of incorporation or registration of companies wishing to do business in Arizona. Additionally, the Commission registers and oversees securities offerings and dealers, and enforces railroad and pipeline safety. The five commissioners who make up the Commission are elected by the people of Arizona for a four-year term, with the option of serving for two consecutive terms.
