The bill requires the Board of Public Utilities (board) to adopt a final decision or order within 12 months of the final public hearing held to determine whether a telecommunications service is a competitive service. If the board has not adopted a final decision or order within 12 months of the final public hearing, the board is to hold an additional public hearing before adopting a final decision or order. The board is to make no determination as to whether a telecommunications service is a competitive service unless a public hearing has been held in the previous 12 months to determine whether a telecommunications service is a competitive service. This bill also requires the board to adopt a final decision or order on an application to increase rates charged by public utilities to their customers within 12 months of the final public hearing held to review an application. If the board has not adopted a final decision or order within 12 months of the final public hearing, the board is to hold an additional public hearing before adopting a final decision or order. Under the bill, a final decision or order is not to be adopted with respect to an application unless a public hearing to review an application has been held in the previous 12 months.
