(2) Does not make unincorporated associations or cooperative corporations subject to the commission’s general powers of regulation;

(3) Allows the commission to regulate access charges imposed by unincorporated associations and cooperative corporations; and

(4) Requires unincorporated associations and cooperative corporations to provide information to the commission that the commission deems necessary to establish new extended service areas. [Formerly 757.860; 2001 c.853 §1]
