FRANKFORT, KY. — A bill that would fully deregulate the telephone industry in Kentucky died Thursday when it was sent back to committee after House and Senate members acknowledged that the two sides couldn’t agree on the plan this year.
“It won’t be revived this session,” said its sponsor, Sen. Paul Hornback, R-Shelbyville, after the Senate recommitted the bill to the Economic Development, Tourism & Labor Committee.
AT&T Kentucky President Mary Pat Regan acknowledged that the measure is dead and said the telecommunications giant would not try to revive the legislation this session.
“We have all agreed that we will take up the issue in the interim,” she said in a statement, while promising to push the bill in the future.
“We look forward to a meaningful discussion on updating Kentucky's laws in a way that will spur investment and create jobs, and there just isn't time left in this legislative session,” Regan said.
Under the bill, AT&T, Windstream and Cincinnati Bell would no longer have to provide basic landline services to all homes and businesses if a competitor were available to provide them. If there were no competitor, a company could provide cellphone service instead.
Opponents, including Tom FitzGerald, executive director of the Kentucky Resources Council, have argued that such a change would be a burden on the poor and the elderly who either can’t afford cell phones or are simply uncomfortable with them.
AT&T, which wrote the legislation, sank significant time and effort into passing the bill.
It hired 32 lobbyists amd spent $47,431 in January and February.
No one has hired more lobbyists this year, although some business organizations have spent significantly more on lobbying than AT&T.
The measure was poised for passage in the Senate on Wednesday when House Speaker Greg Stumbo expressed concern about it during an impromptu interview.
Stumbo, D-Prestonsburg, said Thursday that he has concerns about the quality of cell phone service in rural parts of the states,, especially in his home county of Floyd, which is in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky.
