According to Public Regulation Commission Chairman Sandy Jones, PRC staff say they can cut 2.5 percent of its budget, primarily nixing out-of-state travel and vehicle expenses. It can cut perhaps up to 3.5 percent in the next budget, Jones says.


PRC has 300 staff members and a budget of approximately $27 million.

The bad news: "We're not going to have raises."
