MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Retired businesswoman Kathy Peterson is making another race for the Alabama Public Service Commission.

Peterson announced Saturday that she will run against incumbent Jeremy Oden in the Republican primary June 3.

Peterson ran for PSC president in 2012 and finished third in the Republican primary with 24 percent of the vote.

Peterson says she would use a position on the state's utility regulatory board to speak out against the Environmental Protection Agency and to try to lower energy bills.
