Should Public Entities have Unrestricted Authority to Provide Broadband?

Senate lawmakers discussed Engrossed Substitute House Bill 1336, which would create and expand unrestricted authority for public entities to provide telecommunications services to end users.

The bill passed the House on February 23rd by a vote of 60-37, and passed the Senate on April 11th, 27-22.
