SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A University of California, Berkeley spokesman says the campus won’t be getting the $55,000 that was raised for its public policy school at a dinner honoring former California Public Utilities Commission President Michael Peevey.

Berkeley spokesman Dan Mogulof also told U-T San Diego (https://bit.ly/1BRLLkB ) on Monday that Peevey is no longer member a member of the Goldman School of Public Policy’s advisory board.

The newspaper says Mogulof declined to elaborate on either development.

Peevey is at the center of a criminal investigation over alleged back-channel dealings between the state commission and Pacific Gas & Electric, the state’s largest utility.

A California state senator who represents the Northern California city where a PG&E gas line caused a fatal explosion had criticized the university for lending its name to the $250-a-plate dinner celebrating Peevey’s tenure.
