PAPAR, Dec 14 — The Sabah state government will table a bill to set up the state energy commission next year, said Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Shafie Apdal.

He said it was to follow the handover of Sabah Electricity Sdn Bhd (SESB) to the state government from Tenaga Nasional Berhad, expected to commence early next year.

The proposed commission is, among others, to strengthen the management of the supply and distribution of gas and electricity in the state, he told reporters after attending the Kimanis Christmas Celebration organised by the Kadazan Dusun Murut Malaysia Organisation (KDM Malaysia) at Kampung Kelatuan, here today.

Among those present was Sabah Infrastructure Development Minister Datuk Peter Anthony, who is also KDM Malaysia president.
