Pole Attachments

The American Public Power Association (Association or APPA) opposes any efforts by Congress to weaken or eliminate the municipal exemption public power utilities have from federal pole attachment regulations. APPA also opposes any efforts by the FCC to circumvent well-established federal law that precludes it from regulating public power utility poles. In addition, APPA opposes any attempts by the FCC or Congress to impose a one-size-fits-all approach to the make-ready process for attaching to poles.
