  1. Introduced by Rep. Stacy Erwin Oakes (D) on April 30, 2014, to repeal the law enacted five weeks before this bill’s introduction that streamlines regulations on “landline” telephone service providers so as to facilitate transitioning customers to a wireless (cell phone or VOIP) system, and allows phone companies to discontinue landline service after 2016.
    • Referred to the House Energy and Technology Committee on April 30, 2014.
