On Sept. 25, 2008, PUC proposed rules that will update its regulations dealing with residential utility service standards in order to make those regulations consistent with legislative changes regarding how utilities address delinquent residential accounts.

The Notice of Proposed Rulemaking will revise the PUC's regulations at 52 Pa. Code Chapter 56, to ensure they are consistent with Act 201 of 2004, also known as Chapter 14.   The Commission also used the opportunity to address other issues with Chapter 56 including updates needed due to technological advances such as electronic billing and payments, e-mail and the Internet.
