Cancellation of Certificates of Public Convenience for Common Carriers; Failure to Operate or Report Any Operating Revenue; M-2019-3007610
By the Commission:
The Public Utility Code requires that by March 31 of each year, every public utility must file a report detailing its gross intrastate operating revenue for the preceding calendar year. 66 Pa.C.S. § 510(b). This report is essential for the Commission to fund its operations and to properly allocate assessment costs among the regulated utility community. Id. Additionally, common carriers are required to operate continuously and without unreasonable interruptions of service. 66 Pa.C.S. § 1501, 52 Pa. Code §§ 29.61-62. Commission regulations authorize the cancellation of a common carrier's Certificate of Public Convenience (CPC) for failure to comply with operating and reporting requirements, as well as other provisions of the Public Utility Code. 52 Pa. Code §§ 29.12 (Motor Carriers of Passengers) and 31.12 (Motor Carriers of Property).
The Commission has undertaken a review of its records to determine whether various utilities are in compliance with its operating and reporting requirements. That review has revealed that a significant number of common carriers have repeatedly failed to file the required annual assessment report and failed to establish that they are operating continuously as required. Specifically, each carrier listed in Appendix A, attached hereto, has failed to report any operating revenue to the Commission for each of the last multiple years and has consequently failed to establish any operations for that same period of time.
The Commission's Bureau of Administration sent a final warning letter to each carrier listed in Appendix A, requesting that they either file an assessment report detailing their annual revenue or notify the Commission of their desire to abandon their CPCs. Carriers were provided twenty (20) days to comply. The letter further warned the carriers that failure to comply would result in the Commission taking appropriate action to cancel their CPCs. None of the carriers listed in Appendix A responded to the warning letter.
Under the circumstances, we tentatively conclude that the motor carriers listed in Appendix A are not in compliance with the reporting requirements of 66 Pa.C.S. § 510(b) nor are they in compliance with the operational requirements of 66 Pa.C.S. § 1501, 52 Pa. Code §§ 29.61-62. As such, it is appropriate to initiate the process for cancelling their CPCs as being in the public interest; Therefore,
It Is Ordered:
1. That cancellation of the Certificates of Public Convenience of each motor carrier listed in Appendix A is hereby tentatively approved as being in the public interest.
2. That the Secretary serve a copy of this Tentative Order upon the Bureau of Investigation & Enforcement, the Bureau of Technical Utility Services, the Bureau of Administration, Department of Revenue—Bureau of Corporation Taxes, Department of Transportation, and all motor carriers listed in Appendix A. The Tentative Order shall be filed at each carrier's docket number.
3. That the Law Bureau shall publish a copy of this Tentative Order in the Pennsylvania Bulletin.
4. That all parties listed in Ordering Paragraph No. 2, to the extent they challenge cancellation of the CPC, must file comments within 20 days after publication in the Pennsylvania Bulletin. Comments shall be sent to the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission, Attn: Secretary Rosemary Chiavetta, Commonwealth Keystone Building, 400 North Street, 2nd Floor, Harrisburg, PA 17120.
5. Alternatively, carriers listed in Appendix A may file an Assessment Report for calendar year 2017 gross intrastate operating revenues, within 20 days after publication in the Pennsylvania Bulletin. Reports shall be sent to the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission, Attn: Secretary Rosemary Chiavetta, Commonwealth Keystone Building, 400 North Street, 2nd Floor, Harrisburg, PA 17120.
6. That absent the timely filing of comments challenging cancellation of the CPC, or the timely reporting of a carrier's 2017 gross intrastate operating revenue, the Law Bureau shall prepare a Final Order for entry by the Secretary cancelling the carrier's CPC.
7. That upon entry of the Final Order described in Ordering Paragraph No. 6 above, the Certificate of Public Convenience of each non-compliant carrier shall be cancelled, and each non-compliant carrier listed in Appendix A will be stricken from all active utility lists maintained by the Commission's Bureau of Technical Utility Services and the Fiscal & Assessments Section of the Bureau of Administration.
