​Questions Raised Following Audit of KS Rural Phone Service

(Photo credit:

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — A recent audit of Kansas's rural telephone service program has found that it is generally well-run and efficient, but it also suggests that lawmakers consider the types of services taxpayers are now subsidizing. The Lawrence Journal-World reports that the audit was conducted of the Kansas Universal Service Fund which was established in 1995. The audit notes that taxpayers currently subsidize broadband data and other unregulated services. State Senator Marci Francisco, a Lawrence Democrat, says broadband service today can include services similar to cable TV delivered through a phone line. The Kansas Legislature's Telecommunications Study Committee hired the private firm QSI Consulting Inc. to conduct the audit, and make recommendations to lawmakers.
