(Neb)-PSC Brings Back Former Executive Director
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP)- Mike Hybl has been named the new executive director of the Nebraska Public Service Commission, a job he held for 5 years before leaving in 2012 to become Chief of Staff for U-S Senator Deb Fischer.
The 63-year old Hybl spent 2 years with Fischer before returning to Nebraska, where he's been serving as a legislative staffer. He was officially hired by the Commission Wednesday morning and began his duties immediately at an annual salary of $135,000.
Hybl succeeds Jeff Pursley, who resigned after 2 years in April. Pursley had been under fire from outside the agency over continuing to work part-time for a consulting firm and stepped down despite rulings from both the Nebraska Accountability and Disclosure Commission and Attorney General Doug Peterson that the arrangement didn't violate the law.
Public Service Commission chairman Tim Schram says the board is excited to have Hybl back, calling him "a familiar face to many" whose "vast knowledge of policy and experience on both the state and federal level will serve the Commission well."
