Commission Amends Code of Ethics


TALLAHASSEE — The five-member Florida Public Service Commission unanimously adopted a revised code of ethics for its members Tuesday.

The revised standards emphasize promoting “public confidence in the integrity and impartiality of the Commission” and avoiding “even the appearance of impropriety” in all activities.

Commissioner Lisa Polak Edgar said, “Our action today reinforces this Commission’s commitment to the highest ethical standards and public trust.”

In signing legislation earlier this year related to the Commission, Gov. Jeb Bush urged the PSC members to move forward with efforts to amend the agency’s ethics code to reflect their commitment to adhere to the highest ethical standards.
