Administrative Law Judges Division
The Administrative Law Judges (ALJ) Division consists primarily of attorneys and support staff who act in an adjudicatory role and issue Recommended Decisions in cases referred to the ALJ Division by the Commission. Typically, a Recommended Decision becomes the Commission's Final Order in a case unless modified by the Commission, based on exceptions filed by a party or on the Commission's statutory authority.
The ALJ Division decides all types of public utility, motor carrier and cable television cases and cases involving overweight coal hauling on the Coal Resource Transportation System (CRTS). They also decide cases involving complaints from consumers or other utilities or motor carriers; rate change requests; applications for a certificate of convenience and necessity to construct new or expand existing utility plant; and petitions for prior consent and approval for transactions regulated by the Commission.
