ZA-,-The Malakoff News, Thur !ay, June 11, 1981 by Barry McWilllams P.O. Box 509 Malakoff, Texas 75148 To the Editor: This week I wrote to President Reagan expressing my strong objec- tions to his administration's con- sideration of an appeal from a Judgement of a Federal court overtur- ning the Public Utility Regulatory Policies Act (PURPA). The statute in question was declared unconstitutional by Judge Harold Cox in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Mississippi in February, 1961. The statute itself was part of the ill-conceived National Energy Plan, which gives the U. S. Congress authority to require state utility com- missions to consider and determine the ~Pe~roprlateness of implementing ral ratemaking standards. During the trial, Mississippi argued that this requirement is an intrusion into a State's right to establish its own rate- making policies, and would place an in- tolerable burden of time and money on the State and its Public Service Com- mission by increasing the number and complexity of utility rate hearings. Judge Cox granted a motion for summary Judgement by the State of Mississippi and overturned PURPA on the grounds that it unconstitutionally usurped the power of the State and in- terfered directly in State sovereignty by giving the federal government power to intervene in State regulation of public utilities. At this time, the U. S. Solicitor General has been asked by the Reagan peals in New Orleans. Howevei', would be nice if we could gather again.
