NOTICE OF REVIEW AND STATEMENT OF CONTINUATION
Concise explanation of the particular statutory provisions under which the rule is enacted and how these provisions authorize or require the rule:
Section 54-4-1 provides the Public Service Commission (PSC) authority and jurisdiction to supervise and regulate every public utility in this state. An order by the PSC is needed for approval of promotional programs to ensure such programs are in the public interest.
Summary of written comments received during and since the last five-year review of the rule from interested persons supporting or opposing the rule:
No comments were received in the last five years.
Reasoned justification for continuation of the rule, including reasons why the agency disagrees with comments in opposition to the rule, if any:
Electric and gas regulated monopoly utility companies continue to request approval of promotional programs and the PSC must continue to monitor and regulate those programs to ensure the programs are in the public interest. Therefore, this rule should be continued.
