Short Take: New Mexico delays US West decision

New Mexico regulators have temporarily put off deciding to open an investigation into complaints about US West service there. Public Utilities Commission staff is negotiating with the company, and the board gave the company two weeks to agree on new business practices. If no agreement is reached, the commission will likely open public hearings on the company's performance, with fines or modification of the company's operating rights likely, said Commissioner Herb Hughes.
