Congress and the Trump Administration are considering significant reforms to US Broadband policy. The FCC will be looking at making comprehensive changes to the E-Rate program in 2019 and Congress will be considering a broad-based Infrastructure bill that could provide billions of dollars to fund new broadband deployment and adoption strategies. John Windhausen, Executive Director of the SHLB Coalition, will review all of these developments in an interactive presentation and discussion. In particular he will discuss the SHLB Coalition's draft broadband legislation that proposes to deploy broadband networks "to and through" community anchor institutions to the surrounding community.
