Such regulation by the Commission will continue until the franchising authority has obtained certification or recertification.

(2) The franchising authority lacks the legal authority to regulate basic service rates; Provided, however, That the authority must submit with its request a statement detailing the nature of the legal infirmity.
(c) The Commission will regulate basic service rates pursuant to this Section until the franchising authority qualifies to exercise jurisdiction pursuant to § 76.916.
