What, if any, penalties can be imposed on a municipal utility that violates the new customer privacy law?
Stat. sec. 196.66 sets a forfeiture of no less than $25 nor more than
$5,000 for a violation of any law enforced by the Public Service
Commission. Any forfeiture action, however, would have to be brought by
the Wisconsin Attorney General’s Office or the District Attorney for the
County in which the utility is located.
