Communications and Technology Subcommittee
House Commerce Committee
Wednesday, October 28, 2015

The proposals would streamline processes for getting access to federal lands and utility poles, require smart dig-once policies that take advantage of existing roadwork to deploy fiber conduit, and examine the bureaucracy that impedes private sector investment in broadband.
