NATOA and Diverse Coalition File Pole Attachment Principles

Top Issues,

NATOA, along with the American Public Power Association, Communications Workers of America, National Association of Counties, National Association of Towns and Townships, National League of Cities, National Rural Electric Cooperative Association, Next Century Cities and United States Conference of Mayors, joined together in asking the FCC to reject recent filings suggesting the Commission should enact regulations governing use of municipal, public power and electric cooperative poles.   The coalition’s filing outlines the principles that support the long-standing legal framework in which municipalities, public power utilities and cooperatives—whose purpose is to serve the public interest—retain the flexibility and trust to manage their poles and other assets in the best interest of their communities.
