Such a petition may include a request to determine whether newly created services, and other services not specifically mentioned by the definition of telecommunications service in this chapter, are telecommunications service. All services declared to be telecommunications service shall thereafter be subject to the charge imposed by subchapter 3 of this chapter.
(b) By rule or general order, the Department of Public Service may adopt procedures and standards to implement its responsibilities under this chapter.
