Nixon appoints aide to Mo. utility commission
Gov. Jay Nixon has appointed his top legislative aide to serve on a Missouri commission that regulates utility companies.
Nixon said Friday that he had appointed Daniel Hall to the Missouri Public Service Commission.
Hall, of Columbia, has served as the governor's legislative director since Nixon took office in 2009. Before that, Hall was a senior counsel to Nixon in the attorney general's office. He also has held various other positions in state government and worked as an attorney in private practice.
If confirmed by the Senate, Hall's appointment on the PSC would run until September 2019. He replaces Commissioner Terry Jarrett, whose term had expired.
