Press Advisory - Statement Of Joan H. Smith
November 30, 1999 (1999-51)
Contact: Joan Smith, Commissioner, 503 378-6611
I was pleased to learn that U S WEST Communications, Inc. announced today that it is opting in to SB 622. The funds for improving access to advanced services for all Oregonians are welcome.
SB 622 also establishes a new regulatory program for U S WEST that will help open competitive markets while giving the Commission new, stronger tools to enforce service quality.
SB 622 was the result of much give and take. None of us was completely satisfied with the result. It is not a perfect law, but it holds great promise.
