Notes of Decisions

   Restrictive Amendment

   The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission properly ordered all operating rights of a carrier transferred and rejected a proposed stipulation. The proposed stipulation, in which a carrier agreed to transfer only a portion of its operating rights and to abandon the remainder in exchange for protesters withdrawing their protests to the carrier’s transfer application; was a restrictive amendment contrary to public interest. Yellow Cab Co. of Pittsburgh v. Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission, 618 A.2d 1251 (Pa. Cmwlth. 1992).
