Broadband Legislation in the Next Congress

Schools Health and Libraries Broadband Coalition

Thursday, November 15, 2018 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm

Is your organization prepared to work with the next Congress?

Congress has been very active in the broadband arena throughout 2018, allocating funding for both mapping and deployment. In the midst of controversial issues, legislators agree that closing the digital divide through broadband deployment is an urgent, non-partisan priority.

The next Congress will consider proposals for $40 billion in new broadband funding in 2019, but how will it allocate this funding? That's exactly the topic of discussion for the SHLB Coalition's upcoming webinar. Join us in the week following midterm elections for an in-depth conversation about the election results and what they mean for community anchor institution broadband. 


  • Moderator: John Windhausen, Executive Director, SHLB Coalition 
  • Kim Bayliss, Principal, Perry Bayliss Government Relations 
  • Shawn Chang, Partner, Wiley Rein LLP 

This webinar is free and open to the public.
