HCS/SB 1186 - This act prohibits any constitutional charter city from enacting, absent explicit statutory authority, an ordinance, regulation or resolution that would impose a surcharge or fee for the benefit of a political subdivision other than the city itself.
The act removes the August 28, 2002 sunset date from the
provisions that prohibited political subdivisions from providing
or selling telecommunications services for which a certificate of
service authority is required from the Public Service Commission.
Political subdivisions are permitted to allow non-discriminatory
use of its right-of-ways. Municipal utilities are allowed to
provide telecommunications providers access to telecommunications
services and facilities on a non-discriminatory, competitively-
neutral basis at a price that covers cost.
