Status Update: No Mandatory EOC Presence as of 07/15/19 @ 2:00PM CT

In response to the state declaration of emergency in preparation for Hurricane/Tropical Storm Barry (Potential Tropical Cyclone Two), the Louisiana Public Service Commission was required to report to the Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness, Emergency Operations Center ("EOC"), and a mandatory prohibition on solicitation was ordered. 

We have been advised, conditions of the storm will allow the release of the LPSC from mandatory EOC presence, beginning July 15, 2019, at 2:00 PM CT, and at that time telephonic solicitations into the state can resume in compliance with the general provisions of the LPSC Do Not Call Program General Order, LPSC General Order R-29617.

Should the Commission subsequently be required to report to the Governor's Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness in response to any state of emergency situation, a revised notice will be posted to reflect any change in status.
