Charleston, W.Va. (AP) -- The West Virginia Public Service Commission says it will consider a petition from opponents before ruling on the proposed sale of Verizon's land lines to Frontier Communications.

Frontier is trying to buy Verizon's lines in West Virginia and 13 other states.

Petitions signed by more than 5,000 West Virginians who oppose the deal, including members of the Communications Workers of America, were delivered Tuesday to the PSC.

That three-member body is expected to vote on whether to approve the deal by May, and spokeswoman Sarah Robertson says the petitions will be considered.
