JACKSON, MS (WLOX) -

The Public Service Commission recently announced the decision to release Kemper Power Plant updates online. 

Following a PSC work session on Thursday, Commissioners directed staff to starting making the monthly executive summaries available. 

Additionally, the staff was asked to begin 'evaluating and lawfully unsealing confidential documents filed in the prior Kemper certificate case.'

“We think it is important that the public see the process at work and see that their Commissioners are working for them. Better public access to information is one way to get that message across,” said Sam Britton, Southern District Commissioner. 

Cecil Brown, Central District Commissioner, added, "Transparency in government is always a positive thing. We want the public to be assured that we will continue to ask questions and make the tough decisions necessary to see this project through to completion and we will make that information available.”

The monthly summaries are prepared by the Independent Monitors, who will continue to document and track the project, as well as report to the Commission.
