Mid-America Regulatory Conference Hits the MARC


Grand Time in Grand Rapids

Fortnightly Magazine - September 2023

The Mid America Regulatory Conference, perhaps better known as MARC, held its 2023 Annual Conference, Grand Vision: Past, Present, Future from August 6 - 9 in Grand Rapids, Michigan.

Held across the river from the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum, the MARC 2023 conference theme reflected the active era of federal energy policy.

With unprecedented federal investments through the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, the Inflation Reduction Act, and the Rural Digital Opportunity Fund, the role of state utility regulation and regulators has never been more important in overseeing the electric grid, pipelines, water infrastructure, and other critical assets.
