Bill to Loosen Telephone Regulations

If you are one of the ever-dwindling homes with a traditional land telephone line, you may have to start looking for an alternative. Senate Bill 135, also referred to as the "AT&T Bill," is scheduled to come up before the Senate next week and appears to have the needed support. Sen. Paul Hornback (R-Shelbyville), the sponsor of the bill, said he has worked closely with the Public Service Commission to make sure its officials agree with the bill and that the residents of the commonwealth will continue to have adequate phone service.
