SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — The total compensation for Avista Corp.'s top executive dropped last year as a result of lower stock awards and changing pension values.

Avista is a Spokane-based utility providing power in parts of eastern Washington, northern Idaho and Oregon.

Scott Morris, the chairman and chief executive officer, received about $2.9 million in total compensation in 2013, down nearly $600,000 from a year earlier.

The Spokesman-Review reports the 56-year-old Morris has led Avista since 2008.
