AN ACT TO ASSIGN POLE ATTACHMENT DISPUTES TO THE NORTH CAROLINA UTILITIES COMMISSION.
Amends GS 62-350(a) to clarify that electric membership corporations and municipal electric providers which are exempt from regulation under section 224 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, must allow any communications service provider to use its poles, ducts, and conduits at reasonable and nondiscriminatory rates, terms, and conditions.
Amends GS 62-350(c) to provide that the meaning of the term "just and reasonable" is as determined in accordance with state law, as the term is used in providing guidance in resolving disputes regarding compensation for pole attachments.
Effective when the act becomes law and applies to any action filed on or after that date.
