Two bits of news here. First, legislators are meeting on Monday (April 24, 2017) at 12:30 to discuss the Omnibus bill that includes broadband funding. Second, the following legislators will be in on the discussion:
- Rep Garofalo
- Rep Newberger
- Rep Hoppe
- Rep O’Neill
- Rep Mahoney
- Sen Miller
- Sen Osmek
- Sen Dahms
- Sen Anderson P
- Sen Champion
The bulk of the meeting will be spent going through the two versions of the bill – but it also includes agency testimony. I will try to attend or at least watch from home (if possible) and distill just the broadband sections.
Here’s the announcement:
