The most recent guidelines issued by state and federal officials regarding the COVID-19 virus indicate that gatherings of 10 or more people should be cancelled. To protect the public and our employees during this crisis, while still fulfilling our statutory obligations to hold Open Meetings, the Commission is issuing the following guidelines for the March 24, 2020 Open Meeting.
Members of the public who wish to give public comment on an item should either dial in or submit comments to the docket. Should members of the public show up in person, they will be escorted to Hearing Room 2. No more than 10 people will be allowed in Hearing Room 2.
Participants and parties should appear by telephone. To dial in:
- Dial-in Phone Number: 1-866-705-2554
- Passcode to Speak: 241497
- Passcode to Listen Only: 2414978
Once a matter is concluded, we ask that parties and participants hang up to free the lines for the next matter on the agenda.
Only essential Commission staff will appear in public. The public is strongly discouraged from attending in person; however, the public will still be able to participate by either watching and listening to the meeting online at azcc.gov/live or listening to the meeting via telephone.
To ensure the health and safety of the citizens of our state, stakeholders and employees, the Arizona Corporation Commission has committed to take the necessary steps noted above to prevent the spread of the coronavirus in the community.
A complete list of agenda items for the Commission’s March 24, 2020 Open Meeting is available here.
The Arizona Corporation Commission was established by the state’s constitution to regulate public utilities and business incorporation. The Corporation Commission is Arizona’s co-equal, fourth branch of government. The five Commissioners elected to the Corporation Commission oversee executive, legislative, and judicial proceedings on behalf of Arizonans when it comes to their water, electricity, telephone, and natural gas resources as well as the regulation of securities, pipeline, and railroad safety.
