In response to the state declaration of emergency on August 12, 2016, the Louisiana
Public Service Commission was required to report to the Emergency Operations Center
("EOC"), and a mandatory prohibition on solicitation was ordered. At this time,
GOHSEP has allowed the release of the LPSC from mandatory EOC presence, and
telephonic solicitations into the state can resume in compliance with the general
provisions the LPSC Do Not Call Program General Order, LPSC General Order R-29617.
Should the Commission subsequently be required to report to the Office of Homeland
Security and Emergency Preparedness, in response to any state of emergency situation,
a revised notice will be posted at that time.
