  • Note Regarding References to ORA or DRA: Until September 2018, Public Advocates Office was previously known as ORA or DRA - Office of Ratepayer Advocates or Division of Ratepayer Advocates. 



    The Public Advocates Office ensures that public utility ratepayers are well-represented before the Legislature by taking positions on bills, participating in committee hearings, and providing technical assistance to Senate and Assembly offices.
