This year’s anti-muni bill = S1209

We have a number for this year’s broadband bill in the NC Senate. Senator David Hoyle has officially introduced S1209.  Unlike the earlier three bills that were introduced in 2007 and 2009, this one is short and includes just a few major points.

The writer(s) of the draft have dropped the “Level Playing Field” title from the other bills and gone with “No Nonvoted Local Debt For Competing System” instead for this year’s try. This is the fourth attempt to prevent cities and towns in NC from building next-generation broadband networks.
