Senate Roll Call 255: Passed

To update the comprehensive regulatory regime for land-line telephone companies adopted in 1995 before cell phone service became widespread. Essentially, the bill would allow a land-line provider to discontinue service in certain parts of its service region if at least two cell or internet phone providers serve the area. It would also repeal a mandate that land-line phone companies provide telephone books to each customer.
