Telephone Deregulation

Bill Text: HB14-1331

Date Introduced: March 19, 2014

Sponsors: 4

Status: Signed into law

This bill deregulates the telephone industry in Colorado such that the Public Utilities Commission will no longer have oversight to protect consumers from, for example, overcharges. It also releases the telephone providers from their obligation to provide service to everyone in Colorado, even as 25% still use landlines, many for medical devices that need a landline to communicate with medical personnel.
