§ 92-h. Participation in the targeted accessibility fund. 1. As used
in this section, the term "fund" shall mean the targeted accessibility
fund established by the commission for the purpose, among other things,
of providing financial support for the provision of lifeline service in
the state.

or reseller of commercial mobile radio service, as defined in 47 C.F.R.

telecommunications carrier pursuant to 47 U.S.C. § 214(e) to offer
