FILE - In this Oct. 10, 2019, file photo, a Pacific Gas and Electric sign sits in the exterior of a PG&E building in San Francisco. California power regulators are weighing a recommendation to back off plans to fine PG&E an additional $462 million for igniting a series of Northern California 2018 deadly wildfires rather than risk that the harsher punishment will scuttle the utility's plan to emerge from bankruptcy protection. The state's Public Utilities Commission is mulling whether to pare the penalties PG&E faces as the result of a proposed revision floated by one of agency's five commissioners, Clifford Rechtschaffen.
