The Chairman's Statement
The 1977-78 Section year promises to be an exciting one for all areas of the public
utilities industry and for those members of the profession having a special interest
In public utility law. With the National Energy Act, deregulations bills, and many
other pieces of legislation pending in Congress which directly affect public utilities
major changes in public utility law can be anticipated. The new administration now
has filled many of the vacancies on the various federal regulatory agencies and the
public utility lawyer looks forward to the changes the new members of these agen-
cies will bring forth. Certainly those lawyers in the gas, oil, and electric fields
anticipate new challenges from the new Department of Energy. Of course, new
faces in the Antitrust Division of the Department of Justice can be expected to lend
new flavor to antitrust litigation, both new cases and cases long pending. It is my
hope that the Section of Public Utility Law can be of great assistance to its mem-
bers in meeting these new and exciting challenges.
On behalf of all of the members of the Section, I want to congratulate and thank
William E. Miller, our retiring Chairman, for an excellent year at the head of the
Section. Bill, along with Howard Trienens, as Program Chairman, presented out-
standing programs for the annual meeting and the Council meetings. Thanks and
congratulations also go to George Perrine for another year of sage representation
of the Section in the House of Delegates and we are looking forward to working with
him again in the forthcoming year.
Alan Buchmann, as chairman of the Standing Committee, and Fred Lavey, as chair-
man of the Publications Committee, produced and timely pubished a superlative Re-
port for the Section. Francis X. Welch, our secretary, and Jerry Seymann, our
chairman of Meetings, did their usual outstanding job of keeping the Section moving
and being sure that things are done properly and on time.
In the coming year I look forward to working with
Wayne Babler as Chairman-Elect and the four new
members of our Council. Howard Trienens has
agreed to serve as Chairman of the Standing Commit-
tee for the coming year. Howard gives a superior
performance in every job he is called on to do.
We have a new position among those heading the Sec-
tion this year. For the first time, we have an as-
sistant secretary and N. Michael Grove has been as-
signed to this new position to help our longtime secre-
tary, Mr. Welch, in his many duties. We are also
looking forward to Mike Grove working with Jerry
Seymann as vice-chairman of Meetings.
Ronald D. Jones, 140 Broadway, New York, N. Y.
10005, will be our Program Chairman for the com-
ing year, which will be the Centennial Year of the
ABA. I you have any suggestions for the program
William H. Coldiron     for the annual meeting, will you please get in touch
Chairman, 1977-78       with him.
