SS HCS HB 1765, 2016 (New Section - Proposed Language)
515.580. 1. A public utility, as defined in section 386.020, providing service to estate property may not alter, refuse, or discontinue service to the property without first giving the receiver fifteen days' notice, or such other notice as may be required by the rules of the public service commission for a customer of that class, of any default or intention to alter, refuse, or discontinue service to estate property. This section does not prohibit the court, upon motion by the receiver, to prohibit the alteration or cessation of utility service if the receiver can furnish adequate assurance of payment in the form of deposit or other security for service to be provided after entry of the order appointing the receiver.
2. Any public utility regulated by the public service commission which violates this section shall be subject to appropriate remedial measures by the commission upon receiving notice that the utility has violated the provisions of this section.
3. When a utility service provider not regulated by the public service commission violates this section, upon direction of the court, an action may be brought by the receiver against the utility to enforce compliance with the provisions of this section.
