BYRNE REPLACES STEWART AS INTERIM PSC CHAIRMAN

The lone Democrat on the Utah Public Service Commission is now serving as interim chairman.

James M. Byrne will be chairman until Gov. Norm Bangerter names a replacement for Republican Ted Stewart.Stewart recently resigned to concentrate full time on his campaign for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Jake Garn, R-Utah. Stewart headed the commission for seven years.

Byrne is the only permanent commission member at the present time. Steven Hewlett, a Republican, has been serving as an interim commissioner since last fall when Steven Mecham took leave to serve as Bangerter's chief of staff through the remainder of 1992.
