The uncomfortable relationship between the state’s largest utility — Arizona Public Service — and its regulators on the Arizona Corporation Commission was turned up a notch Nov. 3 when commissioners voted 3-2 to cut APS’s revenue by more than $100 million.

The decision will also lead to the Navajo Nation receiving tens of millions less from APS than hoped for. Last but not least, APS is planning to take legal action against the panel’s decision.

To discuss all of those points, The Show spoke with Ryan Randazzo of the Arizona Republic.
