Borders resigns from Public Service Commission

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Former state Sen. Charlie Borders has
resigned as a member of the Kentucky Public Service Commission.

The Grayson Republican, who served 20 years in the legislature,
confirmed the move on Tuesday.

Borders, a longtime executive of Ashland Inc. and King's
Daughter's Medical Foundation, had served about 2 1/2 years on the
panel that decides utility rate increases.

Gov. Steve Beshear appointed Borders to the position amid
criticism from Republicans who accused the Democratic governor of
trying to weaken the GOP's majority hold in the Senate by
appointing Republican lawmakers to posts that required them to
leave the Senate.

Beshear appointed another Senate Republican, Dan Kelly of
Springfield, to a judiciary seat around the same time that Borders
went to the PSC.
