Access to telecommunications facilities--Application to commission--Order
requiring access--Apportionment of expenses.
The commission may compel access to any
telecommunications facilities in this state. Any telecommunications company desiring access to any
other company's facilities shall, if access is refused, make an application to the commission. Upon
receipt of the application, the commission shall ascertain the facts in the case. If in its judgment the
public service demands the access and the facilities of the applicant are in proper condition, the
commission may order the access upon such terms and conditions that are found to be in the public
interest and apportion the expense of the access.
