Fiscal Detail and Notes
Any additional costs to the Public Utilities Commission (PUC) to conduct public meetings, examine service quality reports of a price cap incumbent local exchange carrier (ILEC) and conduct rulemaking are expected to be minor and can be absorbed within existing budgeted resources. The bill requires the PUC to impose a penalty on a price cap ILEC if it fails to comply with a PUC order concerning service quality requirements. There is no estimate at this time on the amount of revenue to the PUC that would be generated by these penalties.
