What about state regulation of POTS?

This wouldn't end state regulation of POTS in every individual state. AT&T would also have to get states to give up regulation as well, wouldn't it?

If you read AT&T's petition, they specifically want the use of IP, even closed-path, non-public Internet IP services to be declared purely interstate. Thus, in an all-IP network, there's no intra-state services left for the states to regulate.

You mean like AT&T never ending lobbying and court battles to block muni FTTH.

This is already happened in Ohio SB 271.

Unless I misread the status, this never passed the House, and was never signed in to law.

There have been reports on the PUC site that it was passed into law. I'm searching for it now. It went as far as even pulling standards from any customer that "bundled" services.
