A new bill in Salem would break up the Oregon Department of Energy; sending some responsibilities to the Public Utility Commission and others to the Oregon Business Development Department. Representative Jules Bailey says it would also set up an Office of Energy, Siting and Planning, with specific jobs. He says the idea for the bill came after talks with business about the current, confusing system for moving into Oregon. The current system slows licensing by having various agencies that duplicate each other.
