The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (Commission) is a duly constituted agency of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania empowered to regulate public utilities within the Commonwealth. The Commission has delegated its authority to initiate proceedings which are prosecutory in nature to the Bureau of Transportation and Safety and other bureaus with enforcement responsibilities. Pursuant to that delegated authority and Section 701 of the Public Utility Code, the Bureau of Transportation and Safety Prosecutory Staff hereby represents as follows:
1. That all authority issued to REACH FOR THE STARTS LIMO SERVICE (respondent) is under suspension, effective 03/27/2006 for failure to maintain evidence of insurance on file with this Commission.
2. That respondent maintains a principal place of business at REACH FOR THE STARS LIMO SERVICE, 551 BURLINGTON AVE, DELANCO, NJ 08075.

4. That respondent has failed to maintain evidence of bodily injury and property damage liability insurance on file with this Commission.
