Committee proposes broadband expansion


The Dominion Post

CHARLESTON, W.Va.  — A couple handfuls of broadband development bills are floating in various House and Senate committees, but House Judiciary brought a new one to the forefront March 16.

HB 3093 sets up a five-part broadband expansion program. Judiciary vice-chair Roger Hanshaw, R-Clay, outlined the bill during a presentation in the House chamber. Judiciary will hold a public hearing on the bill at 8:30 a.m. March 17 and begin committee work on a revised version of it immediately after.

Hanshaw said the bill grew out of a joint judiciary interim study and is built partly on the federal work of Sen. Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va. It’s revenue neutral and no new burden on taxpayers.
