SS HCS HB 1765, 2016 (New Section - as Truly Agreed)
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.
