TELECOM LIFELINE SERVICES                                                  

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the Public Utilities Act in relation to the  provision  of      
   lifeline telecommunications services. Requires the Commerce Commission      
   to  adopt  rules  limiting  the ability of a carrier to discontinue or      
   block  lifeline  services.  Provides  for  the  Commission   and   the      
   Departments  of Public Aid, Human Services, and Commerce and Community      
   Affairs to work cooperatively to  establish  a  program  of  automatic      
   enrollment   of   persons  eligible  for  lifeline  telecommunications      
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
        Deletes provisions prohibiting telecommunications  carriers  from      
   discontinuing   service  to  customers  receiving  lifeline  services.      
   Deletes provisions relating to the blocking of long distance  service.      
   Provides  that  the  Commission  shall  issue  rules for the enhanced,      
   rather than automatic, enrollment of consumers eligible  for  lifeline      
          FISCAL NOTE, H-AM 1 (Illinois Commerce Commission)                   
          The exact magnitude of the fiscal impact cannot be determined        
          at this time, if is unlikely that, internally, the Commission        
          will see an increased fiscal impact as a result of HB 3105           
          (House Amendment 1).
