Coalition Letter on Technology Flexibility – CA AB 1065 Support

By Marshall Miller

California Takes Wireless Off the Back Burner:

WIA was encouraged to see the Senate Appropriations Committee take AB 1065 off of the Suspense File on September 1 following the submission of the above coalition letter.  This measure, which would allow wireless solutions to compete for state broadband funds, had been stalled in the Senate after unanimous adoption of the measure in the Assembly earlier this year.  On August 8, WIA led a coalition of five other telecom trade associations in encouraging the Senate to bring the measure back under consideration.
