ALLENTOWN, Pa. -

The state says PPL didn't follow procedure during the October 2011 snowstorm and now it has to pay the price.

The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission has finalized a settlement with PPL that includes a $60,000 penalty.

The PUC says during that storm PPL transferred a restoration crew from a higher priority job in order to restore service to a lower priority job.

That's a violation of PUC regulations.
