Dear neighbor,

Thank you so very much for your quick response communicating with your state representatives and senators about the adverse impacts of House Bill 1798.  Because of your efforts, a solution was reached today with the House Speaker and Bill Sponsors to address these pole attachment issues through a proceeding at the Arkansas Public Service Commission.  The Commission has jurisdiction to set pole attachment rates and deal with pole attachment issues, so this is the appropriate way to handle these matters, instead of through the legislative process. 

Thank you so much for your engagement in this effort.  This is a great example of the value of cooperative ownership and our cooperative community working together for our common good.
