Presley to challenge AT&T law

Northern District Mississippi Public Service Commissioner Brandon Presley will legally challenge a new state law stripping his agency of regulatory power over AT&T.

Presley, whose office is located in Nettleton, said he plans to file the suit as a private citizen in Hinds County Circuit Court. He has several pro-bono attorneys preparing the case, he said.

“It violates the state constitution,” Presley said of the bill during an interview with the Daily Journal on Tuesday. “There’s no doubt AT&T is the biggest in the state, and this bill will allow them to raise rates without any oversight at all.”
