Public hearing Feb. 7, 2023 on updating rules for Washington's Broadband Program

This rulemaking will align the Public Works Board’s (PWB) Broadband Program with legislation (2022 House Bill 1673) enacted in the 2022 session. The proposed rules will clarify the requirements and timeline for both the funding application and challenge processes, and outline an emergency broadband program.  

The PWB filed a CR-102 notice of proposed rulemaking on Dec. 22, with the intended date of adoption on Feb. 15, 2023.

PUBLIC HEARING: Tuesday,  Feb. 7, 2023, 10 - 11 a.m.
