The article reports on Missouri's attempt to regulate its cable voice over Internet Protocol service through the issuance of certifications. It was initiated through the complaints filed by the Public Service Commission (PSC) against the Internet Protocol Phone of Comcast Corp. Comcast answered the demand by filing a federal lawsuit which hinders PSC from asking certifications. John Van Eschen, PSC manager, claims that the barring is not applicable for local cable operators like Comcast.
