Progress Made on HB 789 

We've made great progress on House Bill 789!

But we need to keep the heat on.

Let's continue to support elimination of the language in the bill that outlaws community wireless projects.

Municipal Wireless Networks and those that are public/private collaborations bring other benefits to the public that should be supported.
In my opinion, these include:

Open research and innovation opportunities

Community safety and security uses

Encouragement of competition that supports faster and more ubiquitous deployment in all communities (including rural and low-income communities)

Other municipal uses and services to citizens (parking meters, bill paying etc.)

Economic Development

These are but a few. Write your representatives in Austin.
