GENERAL ORDER NO. 187.44
In the matter of proposed amendments to the Rules and Regulations for the Government of Telephone Utilities, 150 C.S.R. Series 6.
On January 6, 2015, the Public Service Commission promulgated a proposed amendment to Rule 2.6 of the Rules and Regulations for the Government of Telephone Utilities, 150 C.S.R.
