Relating to the procedure for amending or revoking certificates of public convenience and necessity issued to certain retail public utilities.
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated
HB 837 would amend the process for revoking certificates of necessity and convenience for a retail public utility. The bill would require the Public Utility Commission to require a petitioner for water utility decertification to submit a report to the utility commission verifying that all required compensation has been paid to the decertified retail public utility and the certificate holder.
This bill would also require a municipality or franchised utility to submit a report to the Public Utility Commission verifying that the municipality or franchised utility has paid all required adequate and just compensation to the water retail public utility rendered useless or valueless by a certification.
Texas Action remains neutral on HB 837.
