The Hill has been abuzz about broadband infrastructure over the past few weeks. Congress is considering several bills that specifically address the need for high-quality broadband - but not all proposals acknowledge the connectivity needs of anchor institutions. Scoring Congressional Broadband Proposals” will examine the broadband bills most likely to become law and discuss those with the most potential to attain the National Broadband Plan’s goal of gigabit connectivity for all community anchor institutions. SHLB Coalition Executive Director John Windhausen will moderate the conversation with Public Knowledge Senior Policy Counsel Phillip Berenbroick, NTCA SVP of Industry Affairs & Business Development Mike Romano, and Kelley Drye & Warren Partner Thomas Cohen.
