Broadband Bills to Keep Tabs On

Sens. Maggie Hassan (D-N.H.) and Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) last week offered a double dose of broadband : the Rural Broadband Investment Tax Credit Act, which would create a tax credit to help spur state and local broadband efforts, and the Rural Broadband Financing Flexibility Act, allowing state and local governments to use tax-exempt bonds to help stand up public-private rural broadband projects. House Judiciary Committee ranking member Doug Collins (R-Ga.), meanwhile, reintroduced his Gigabit Opportunity Act, H.R. 5082 (116), aimed at helping state governors offer tax incentives for providers offering fast internet service.
