Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This resolution, similar to HR 1698, creates the Senate Study Committee on Advanced Communications Technologies and the Use of State and Local Government Right of Way.  The study committee (made up of five Senate members, one mayor, one county commissioner and three experts on communications deployment or taxation issues) will study state and local laws/regulations pertaining to the use public right of way to deploy advanced broadband, video and voice technologies; whether these advanced technologies are, or should be, treated differently than current technologies in terms of regulation, taxation and other matters; and whether state laws should be changed in this area to achieve modernization, fairness and technology neutrality regarding access to the rights of way.
