Environmental group wants PUCO to reconsider cases after chair resigned

Sam Randazzo, chairman of the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio.

COLUMBUS, Ohio--"An environmental group is asking the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio to throw out and re-do proceedings that involve Akron-based FirstEnergy Corp. during the nearly two years that Sam Randazzo led the PUCO.

The Environmental Law & Policy Center filed a motion Tuesday with the PUCO, just five days after Randazzo resigned as PUCO chairman.

Last week, FBI agents executed a search warrant at a Columbus condo owned by Randazzo and hauled away boxes of material."
