Urgent! Senate version of HB 1252 up tomorrow, May 7.

DecalForgive the exclamation points, but this is important.

One day after the house public utilities committee sent the anti-municipal broadband bill to a study committee, the senate version of the SAME BILL will be heard in a Senate committee tomorrow.

Senate bill 1004 can stop next-generation broadband deployment just as abruptly as the house bill. When I called one of the chairperson’s offices to confirm the time just now, the administrative assistant handed the phone to a cable company employee to explain the bill.

Please contact the NC Senate Commerce Committee if you care about next-generation broadband in our state.

If you can come, even better. Senate Commerce Committee meets Thursday, May 7, at 8:00am – Room 1027 of the Legislative Building.
