The NC House failed to act on HB1587 before they ended this session. So not only don’t we have the bad bill we don’t have the new study version either. The Local Government Fair Competition Act is dead! Goodbye! See ya!
I’m really happy we all got together and killed this thing. But I realize the old skool corporate lobbyist movement to restrict actual fair and OPEN competition in local broadband is alive. Undead if you will.
So keep your zombie battle gear handy. A good way to stay on top of this is by joining the NC Public Broadband list. We’ll have to get back to sending bad bills back to hell real soon.
