Presley Forbids Utilities to Charge Customers for Private, Corporate Jets Expenses

Jackson, Mississippi (August 9, 2019) – Yesterday, the Mississippi Public Service Commission unanimously voted to no longer allow utility companies to charge customers for expenses related to private, corporate jets. Public Service Commissioner Brandon Presley stated these expenses should not be the responsibility of customers.

“It’s a shame and a disgrace that utility companies would charge their customers for private, corporate jets and all the costs of operating them. I refuse to allow the customers to fund their luxurious lifestyles. If they want a corporate jet, they can pay for it themselves out of their own pockets,” said Commissioner Brandon Presley.

This idea was first proposed by Commissioner Presley in 2018 in an effort to protect customers from unreasonable costs on their bills. For more information contact Commissioner Presley’s office at 1-800-637-7722.
