FCC Releases Controversial Pole Attachment Order and FNPRM
On May 20, 2010, the FCC released its "Order and Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking" in the Pole Attachment proceeding (available at http://hraunfoss.fcc.gov/edocs_public/attachmatch/FCC-10-84A1.doc), which contains only a handful of final rules but a host of proposed new rules. Keller and Heckman LLP attorney Tom Magee has analyzed the Order and FNPRM and prepared a comprehensive 17-page summary of the Commission's decisions, proposed rules and requests for comments (available at http://www.khlaw.com/showpublication.aspx?Show=3722). Their summary shows the far-reaching and potentially damaging scope of this proceeding: the Commission has issued 5 final rules and sought comment on 32 new or revised rules as well as on an additional 163 related issues. In Tom's view, a large number of these rules would be seriously adverse to electric utilities if implemented.
