OHIO UTILITY REGULATOR
Former state budget director sworn in as chair of Ohio's public utilities commission

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Wednesday, April 16, 2014 2:46 PM EDT
COLUMBUS, Ohio


Gov. John Kasich has sworn in a former state budget director and lawmaker as Ohio's top utility regulator.

The Republican governor swore in Thomas Johnson as chairman of the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio on Wednesday.

Johnson, of suburban Columbus, replaces Todd Snitchler (SNIHCH'-lur), who decided not to seek reappointment when his term expired April 10.

Johnson was appointed by Kasich and confirmed by the Ohio Senate. He spent 22 years in the Ohio House before becoming budget director for then-Gov. Bob Taft.

Snitchler has joined the business department at McDonald Hopkins, where he'll counsel clients on issues of energy policy and strategy, government affairs and regulatory matters.
