Temporary Underground Power Panels (Watch) – PASSED 

CS/HB 481 (Duggan) prohibits counties and municipalities from enacting regulations that prevent electric utilities from installing temporary underground power panels that meet the requirements of the National Electrical Code, and prevent counties and municipalities from requiring permanent inspections if the local government has already performed a temporary inspection. CS/HB 481 passed the House (115-0) and the Senate (36-0) and is awaiting action by the Governor. (O'Hara)
