Two executives of the Public Service Company of New Mexico fielded some rough questions Tuesday from a legislative committee about the proposed merger with two big utility companies.

The hearing before the Legislature’s Science, Technology and Telecommunications Committee turned into more of a grilling than the simple update that might have been anticipated.

Sayuri Yamada, PNM’s executive director of public affairs, suggested to the committee it would be a session to introduce Don Tarry, who is in line to be the next head of PNM, and to briefly discuss the proposed merger with Avangrid of Connecticut and Iberdrola of Spain.
