N.Y. Public Service Law Section 92-H
Participation in the targeted accessibility fund


As used in this section, the term “fund” shall mean the targeted accessibility fund established by the commission for the purpose, among other things, of providing financial support for the provision of lifeline service in the state.


Notwithstanding any other provision of this chapter, any provider or reseller of commercial mobile radio service, as defined in 47 C.F.R. § 20.3, in the state that is designated as an eligible telecommunications carrier pursuant to 47 U.S.C. § 214(e) to offer lifeline service in the state may, but shall not be required to, participate in the fund for the purpose of offering lifeline service. If such a provider elects to participate in the fund, the provider shall assume all rights and obligations associated with such participation under the commission’s orders, on the same basis as other participants. Any such provider that has elected to participate in the fund may withdraw from such participation at any time.


Except to the extent necessary to supervise or administer the fund, nothing in this section shall confer upon the commission any regulatory jurisdiction over providers or resellers of commercial mobile radio service that elect to participate in the fund.
