Commissioners Reject Expanding Scope of 25.483 Rulemaking

Commissioners rejected the idea of expanding the rulemaking in project 39926 to address the issues raised by staff’s memorandum.  Chm. Nelson stated that in her view the complaints about this issue (payment processing timelines for reconnects) were too small at present to warrant adding regulations.  She also noted that this is a competitive market and that the market should provide the solution for this issue, noting that customers can penalize REPs that take too long to perform reconnect.  Com. Anderson appeared to support expanding the rulemaking to address these issues, but relented.  Com. Pablos agreed with Chm. Nelson’s assessment.  Chm. Nelson did note that if complaints about this issue increased, the commission could always revisit the issue.
