The article reports on the decision of the Nevada Public Utilities Commission (PUC) to keep its utility assessments low, due in part to the tendency of utilities to charge their customers for those expenses. It states that the PUC set the mill assessment at 1.95 for a second year since 2007, well below the 3.5 mill maximum. It cites that the said mill rate generates $9.4 million for the PUC and its 90-person staff. According to PUC spokesman Sean Sever, such expenses adds up to 30 cents per utility bill for the customer.
