Current Bill Summary

SB 955 - The act creates and codifies a hot weather rule, similar to the cold weather rule currently in place. The act specifies that the hot weather rule shall mean the period of time between June 1 to September 30, wherein certain utility services may not be discontinued for a variety of reasons. The act asserts that such service may not be discontinued on any day where the forecast predicts that the temperature will rise above eighty-eight degrees Fahrenheit for the following twenty-four hours or any day where such service may not be reconnected on the immediate succeeding day and the temperature rises above the eighty-eight degree mark. Other circumstances where the rule may be applied are left to the commission's discretion and subsequent rules.
