§

45. Additional personnel; compensation

(a) For purposes

of the proceedings described in subsection (b) of this section, the board or

agency may retain the services of legal counsel, official stenographers, and

expert witnesses. These persons shall be in addition to its regular personnel.

The board or agency shall fix the amount of compensation and expenses to be

paid to the additional personnel.

(b) Proceedings

for which additional personnel may be retained are:

(1) hearings

resulting from a company's request to seek an increase in its rates, tolls, or

charges including hearings resulting from complaints against the proposed

increase;

(2) hearings

resulting from a petition by a company or a person operating a company to issue

stock, bonds, notes, or other evidences of indebtedness for which the approval

of the board is required by law; and

(3) hearings

resulting from a petition for a merger or consolidation for which the approval

of the board is required by law.

(c) Persons

employed by the state are competent to be designated to act for the same

purposes and instead of or in conjunction with additional personnel retained

under this section. However, when so acting, they shall not receive

compensation in addition to their regular pay. (Added 1985, No. 222 (Adj.
