Glad to report good news, folks. You did it. HB 1252 is going to a study committee. That means it will be adapted, at the very least, before it would come back for a vote. It may not come back at all. Greenlight and all NC muni broadband projects are alive and well.
This is good news because it stops any forward progress of the bill for a while. If it gets out of the House Select Rural Broadband Committee (I think that’s the correct name) it would have to go through at least one more study committee (Revenue) before it made it back to square one.
This is an excellent victory for the spread of next-generation broadband in NC.
Thanks to all of you for contacting our legislators. They even mentioned during today’s meeting that they had received a lot of emails and phone calls about the bill. You rock. All of you.
