Federal Bipartisan E&C Bill to Improve Broadband Mapping Passes House

Better maps at the national level will be a good idea all the way around since funding and strategic planning is often based on these maps. E&C reports

 Today, the House passed the bipartisan Broadband Deployment Accuracy and Technological Availability Act (S.1822) by unanimous consent,  which will improve efforts to collect more accurate internet availability data, boost connectivity, and make sure our limited resources are used to deploy broadband in communities that need it most. It passed out of the Senate in December 2019 and is now one step closer to the President’s desk to be signed into law.
