Rural Water Sewer & Solid Waste Management v. City of Guthrie

Petition for Rehearing and Rehearing En Banc on Spending Clause challenge to 1926(b)


This proceeding raises the issue of whether rural water districts formed by Oklahoma county commissions, and virtually devoid of any other regulation by the State of Oklahoma, may use monopoly protection granted under federal law to restrict or even prevent the provision of water services, including water used for fire protection, in areas described as the “urban fringe” – which in reality consist of residential subdivisions, apartment buildings, retail centers, and even hospitals.
