Commission on Electric Utility Regulation; Re-regulation Oversight Commission. Continues the Commission on Electric Utility Restructuring as the Re-regulation Oversight Commission and extends its scheduled expiration from July 1, 2008, until July 1, 2010. The Electric Utility Restructuring Act is renamed the Electric Utility Re-regulation Act, and provisions of the Act that address the transition to retail competition are revised to address provisions of 2007 legislation that curtailed many aspects of the scheduled re-regulation of electric generation services.
