Public Broadband Act has passed the House and is headed to the Senate. Check out this link for more information.
I hope to be putting more calls to action here. It’s easy to be dismayed and disgusted with elected officials. After the last four years, I think we have a clearer vision of what happens if we let private sector actors continue to usurp our “we the people” in the halls of our houses, senates, congress, councils.
The public commons is worth protecting. It’s why we pay taxes. It’s why the private sector ought to pay more taxes. They buy their power. But they don’t pay for it. There’s a difference.
March 11 is the hearing. If you can show up for the hearing, great. If not, please use the link provided by Representative Drew Hansen to pledge support for public broadband.
