Sen. David Sibley, co-chair of the Electric Utility Restructuring Legislative Oversight Committee, will speak on "Deregulation of Electrical Power in Texas" from 10:30 a.m. to noon Friday, April 6, in the Armstrong Browning Library Treasure Room.

In addition to Baylor students and faculty, a group of MBA students from the Shandong Electric Power Company (SEPCO) of China, who have a special interest in the possibilities for market-oriented reform of the electric power industry, will attend.

Sibley was the author of the Texas Electric Choice Plan approved by Texas legislators in 1999 and has successfully sponsored several high-profile bills, including one to restructure the electric utility industry in Texas. First elected to the Texas Senate in 1991, he is serving a fourth session as chairman of the Senate Business and Commerce Committee and also serves on the Education and Health and Human Service committees.

Sibley is a graduate of Baylor University, Baylor College of Dentistry and Baylor Law School. He was appointed to Baylor's Board of Regents in November 1996.
