Verizon looks for local phone deregulation in Virginia

The Times-Dispatch reports here ("Verizon set to seek deregulation plan," 12/27/03) that Verizon, the largest provider of telephone service in Virginia, will seek new laws from the General Assembly deregulating local telephone service. In the article, an State Corporation Commission official says that under existing law, Verizon could make a pitch before the SCC for relief from the regulations where it can show competition.
