StimulatingBroadband.com 05/15/09 Boston - Thanks to the staff of Congresswoman Anna G. Eshoo (D-CA-14), we are able to bring to our readers the full text of the federal Broadband Conduit Act filed yesterday by Representative Eshoo and 3 important co-sponsors.
A filed .PDF version of the 4 page bill text is available here.
We reported on the filing of the legislation last evening here. We have received multiple inquiries about the actual text of the bill today. Given that the electronic filing of the bill takes some time to be posted on the Thomas site of the Library of Congress, Congresswoman Eshoo wanted to have interested readers be able to study the bill's full text immediately.
The Thomas site now designates the Broadband Conduit Act as H.R. 2428.
As we reported last evening, Rep. Eshoo's co-sponsors of the legislation are fellow Democratic members of the House Energy & Commerce Committee: Henry A. Waxman (CA-30), Chair. of the full Committee; Rick Boucher (VA-9), Chair. of the Subcommittee on Communications, Technology and the Internet; and Edward J. Markey (MA-7), Chair. of the Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming.
StimulatingBroadband.com will update on the expected route of the H.R. 2428 through the appropriate Committees of Congress, and on the pending filing of a Senate companion bill by Senator Amy Klobuchar (D-MN).
