Text of measure
A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION PROPOSING AN AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION OF ARIZONA RELATING TO PUBLIC SERVICE CORPORATIONS; AMENDING THE DEFINITION OF PUBLIC SERVICE CORPORATION TO INCLUDE CERTAIN PRIVATE SEWAGE DISPOSAL CORPORATIONS, AND AMENDING ARTICLE 15, SECTION 2, CONSTITUTION OF ARIZONA
The summary from the Legislative Council for this measure was:
The amendment contained in Proposition No. 104 would classify private- for- profit sewage disposal systems as public service corporations and would make them subject to the following types of regulation and control by the Arizona Corporation Commission:
1. Service corporations would be required to obtain a certificate of public convenience and necessity from the Corporation Commission before constructing sewage disposal services or systems
2. The Commission would be required to determine and prescribe just and reasonable rates, rules, and practices for sewer corporations
3. The Commission would be authorized to prescribe record-keeping and accounting procedures for private sewer corporations
4. Sewer corporations would be required to supply the Commission with annual reports, financial statements, and other pertinent data concerning their operations
5. The Commission would be authorized to conduct, at any time, examinations of the records and personnel of sewer corporations
6. The Commission would be authorized to conduct hearings with respect to sewer corporations in connection with their rates, complaints on operations and overcharges, and the valuation of their property
7. The Commission would be empowered to determine and prescribe the adequacy of service rendered by private sewer corporations Corporation Commission officials report that there are an estimated 100 private sewer systems currently operating in Arizona and these systems are primarily owned by residential subdividers and private utility companies The Department of Health Services presently regulates the sanitary aspects of these systems
The Corporation Commission further estimates that it would take three or four additional employees approximately one year to establish the administrative framework for regulation of these sewer corporations. Such administrative tasks involve hearings; the issuance of certificates of public convenience and necessity and the examination of financial data.
