Among other appointments today, Gov. Mike Beebe reappointed Elana Wills to the state Public Service Commission, for a term through 2019. He appointed her to fill an unexpired term in 2011.

Another opening could be coming sooner than expected on the body that sets utility rates. Chairman Colette Honorable has been nominated to a seat on the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, but has not been through the confirmation process. Olan Reeves is the third member of the commission. He was appointed by Beebe in 2009.
