PREPROPOSAL STATEMENT OF INQUIRY
The Washington utilities and transportation commission (commission) filed a preproposal statement of inquiry (CR-101) regarding fees for federal Telecommunications Act activities on October 5, 2011, at WSR 11-20-104. The commission has decided not to proceed with this rule-making proceeding and requests that the CR-101 published in WSR 11-20-104 be withdrawn.
After reviewing data on the expense of performing Telecommunications Act services and possible revenues from establishing fees for these services, the commission has determined, for the present time, that the revenues gained through fees would not be significant to warrant the additional costs of rule making. Thus, the commission is withdrawing its notice of a rule-making proceeding in this docket, and will notify stakeholders of the withdrawal of this proceeding.
