(Olympia, WA)  --  Washington State Attorney General Bob Ferguson says a fine proposed for CenturyLink over a statewide 911 outage is not enough.  The "News Tribune" reports the Washington Utilities and Transportation Commission negotiated a two-point-nine-million-dollar settlement with the communications giant over the April 2014 outage.  The outage lasted about six hours, causing more than 56-hundred emergency calls statewide not to reach 911 dispatchers.  Ferguson calls the nearly three-million-dollar settlement "woefully inadequate" and is recommending a fine of eleven-and-a-half-million, which CenturyLink officials call "overly punitive."
