Governor's messages sought

Residential solar firm Sunrun last week sued Gov. Brian Sandoval for not turning over messages in response to a public records request that called for the governor's messages to and from NV Energy employees and lobbyists. The request also covered the governor's staff and Public Utilities Commission members. A news release from the company said both emails and text messages are sought.

The lobbyists named are Pete Ernaut, Greg Ferraro, Lorne Malkiewich and Tony Sanchez. They operated as utility lobbyists during this year's legislature when legislation to hike the net metering cap on solar failed to pass.

The governor's office turned over some messages but Sunrun says there were none during the period Feb. 1-July 27, which includes the legislative session.
