AUGUSTA AARP members and staff were present at a work session of the Joint Standing Committee on Energy, Utilities and Technology (EUT) to continue efforts to protect basic landline telephone service for all Mainers.

Two bills, LD 466 and LD 1302, both titled An Act to Increase Competition and Ensure a Robust Information and Telecommunications Market, were carried over by the EUT Committee last session. The bills have been combined by a stakeholder committee, along with LD 879, and will continue as LD 466. The new bill, brought to the Committee today for preliminary discussion, identifies 25 municipalities in which basic landline telephone service would be immediately deregulated and establishes a process to further deregulate basic landline telephone service in additional Maine towns in the years to come.
