The NC House Public Utilities Committee votes today on HB 1252. They meet at 10am in room 1228 of the Legislative building on Jones St. It will be interesting to see what happens after several large companies including Google, Intel and Alcatel-Lucent sent a letter to lawmakers this week saying HB 1252 is not good for NC’s progress.
Here’s a portion: “HB1252 is a step in the wrong direction. North Carolina should be lowering barriers to public broadband initiatives rather than establishing new ones, so that we and other high technology companies can spread and prosper across this beautiful state. Please oppose HB1252.”
