Most of the following letters oppose all three bills: SB.556, AB.537 & SB.378. The common ask in these letters is to Preserve Local Control over Broadband and Telecommunications infrastructure, particularly in the public rights-of-way. The State could not possibly fully understand the current, unique infrastructure assets and opportunities of each locality. Each locality must be able to chart their own best course for Wired Broadband and Wireless Telecommunications infrastructure decisions within their respective jurisdictions.
