House committee reviews broadband projects

The take-away comment from this hearing was from:

Rep. Charles Bass (R-NH), author of House-approved legislation to return unused or reclaimed funds made available for broadband awards in the stimulus to the U.S. Treasury, explained the importance of ensuring that the loans and grants in these programs do not adversely affect companies not receiving government subsidies. Bass said, “I hope that this program can be implemented with a sensitivity to the fact that it needs to go where it’s really needed and not parallel existing capacity and not be set up in direct competition with private entities.
