(220 ILCS 5/13-403) (from Ch. 111 2/3, par. 13-403)
    (Section scheduled to be repealed on December 31, 2020)
    Sec. 13-403. Interexchange service authority; approval. The Commission shall approve an application for a Certificate of Interexchange Service Authority only upon a showing by the applicant, and a finding by the Commission, after notice and hearing, that the applicant possesses sufficient technical, financial and managerial resources and abilities to provide interexchange telecommunications service. The removal from this Section of the dialing restrictions by this amendatory Act of 1992 does not create any legislative presumption for or against intra-Market Service Area presubscription or changes in intra-Market Service Area dialing arrangements related to the implementation of that presubscription, but simply vests jurisdiction in the Illinois Commerce Commission to consider after notice and hearing the issue of presubscription in accordance with the policy goals outlined in Section 13-103.
    The Commission shall have authority to alter the boundaries of Market Service Areas when such alteration is consistent with the public interest and the purposes and policies of this Article. A determination by the Commission with respect to Market Service Area boundaries shall not modify or affect the rights or obligations of any telecommunications carrier with respect to any consent decree or agreement with the United States Department of Justice, including, but not limited to, the Modification of Final Judgment in United States v. Western Electric Co., 552 F. Supp. 131 (D.D.C. 1982), as modified from time to time.
