Clyde Holloway, 72, a former congressman and chairman of Louisiana's utility regulatory agency, died Sunday at his home in Forest Hill, La. No cause of death was released.
Mr. Holloway, a Republican, served three terms in the U.S. House from 1987 to 1993, when the seat was eliminated in congressional redistricting. Later efforts to return to Congress were unsuccessful.
He had served on the Public Service Commission since 2009.
PSC Commissioner Eric Skrmetta released a statement Monday calling Mr. Holloway "a true public servant with a long and storied career. He loved Louisiana and tried to do what was right at all times."
