Telecom Deregulation - State Level

Indiana Committee OKs Telecom Bill: During its hearing yesterday, the Indiana Senate’s Homeland Security, Utilities and Public Policy Committee approved by a 8-2 vote proposed telecom-reform legislation that reportedly could go before the full State Senate for a vote as early as next week. The deadline for bills to advance out of the Senate is Feb. 2. Georgia Eyes Telecom Deregulation: During its 2006 session, the Georgia General Assembly will be considering at least two key pieces of communications legislation currently in the hopper: One effectively deregulates voice telephony regardless of technology and another prevents wireless companies from imposing contract extensions on users.
