During a joint meeting of the House and Senate, on April 10 the Alaska Legislature confirmed the appointment of three commissioners for the Regulatory Commission of Alaska: Janis Wilson, Paul Lisankie and Antony Scott. The confirmations take effect on May 2.
Janis Wilson is already an RCA commissioner: Her appointment will continue uninterrupted. Paul Lisankie is also currently serving as a commissioner, having been appointed at the beginning of February as a replacement for Commissioner Norman Rokeberg, who had announced his early retirement. Lisankie will fill the remainder of Rokeberg’s term, which expires March 1, 2019. Scott is replacing Commissioner Rebecca Pauli, who is leaving the commission.
Scott was chief economist for the RCA between 2000 and 2002, before becoming a commercial analyst in Alaska’s Division of Oil and Gas, where he gained expertise in the management and economics of the trans-Alaska pipeline. In 2012 he became senior commercial analyst in the Center for Research Services in the University of Alaska Fairbanks. Work conducted during his time at UAF included a study into the economics of energy supplies in Fairbanks, and a study for the RCA into the various issues relating to the management of the Alaska Railbelt electrical system. Since July 2015 Scott has been working as commercial manager for the Alaska Liquefied Natural Gas project.
