Vermont USF High-Cost Phase III report
Act 169, as it amends 30 V.S.A. § 7515(b)(8), requires a series of reports related to the Vermont Universal Service Fund. The Public Service Department contracted with the consultant RLSA to prepare these reports. Volume III of the Universal Service Fund Report, entitled "Universal Service Goals and Policy Options," fulfills the Department's obligations under 30 V.S.A. $ 7515 (b). The purpose of this report is to inform the Legislature about various universal service considerations as committees take up the subject of universal service reform. The Department notes that the views, opinions, and recommendations contained within this report are strictly those of the authors, and do not represent the position or preferred policy direction of the Department.
