Three of five members of the state Public Regulation Commission on Wednesday ripped the proposed merger involving Public Service Company of New Mexico and two other companies, indicating they may vote against the move.

The comments made by Stephen Fischmann of Las Cruces, Cynthia Hall of Albuquerque and Theresa Becenti-Aguilar of Northwest New Mexico were an unmistakable indication the proposal could be in jeopardy. The merger plan was on the commission’s agenda as an information item, but the three chose to reveal where they stood.

“I don’t see that it’s a good thing for our state,” Hall said.
