Broadband maps to include maternal health data?

From the world of “that’s interesting”

Senate agreed to House amendment (12/13/2022)

Data Mapping to Save Moms’ Lives Act

This bill directs the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to include data on maternal mortality and severe maternal morbidity in its broadband health mapping tool. This is an online platform that allows users to visualize, overlay, and analyze broadband and health data at national, state, and county levels.

The FCC must consult with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention regarding the data to incorporate into the tool.
