Senate 5G Bill ‘Still Percolating’

Although House Republicans are making a lot of noise this week about broadband infrastructure proposals, top senators say a bill addressing 5G is still rolling along. “I know we were close before,” Thune told John. “It’s still percolating.” Thune was working on this draft bill last year with Schatz and at one point hoped to mark it up by December, eyeing its possible inclusion in a broader infrastructure package or other legislative vehicle. Even last month, he retained confidence that they would release it by year’s end. “We’re still working on this bill with Schatz, which we’ll roll out soon,” Thune says now. Frederick Hill, his committee spokesman, notes, “Our office continues to evaluate input and potential changes as a result of feedback received from our draft circulation.”
