Staff Analysis of the Legislation

This bill permits broadband services, so long as additional poles or other ground-based structures are not employed, to be deployed in electrical easements without changing the nature of the easement, nor interfere with or impair any vested rights of the easement owner or occupier.  Broadband providers, or owners of electric easements, may install, maintain, lease, and operate broadband services in the easement without incurring liability or paying additional compensation to the owner of the property subject to the easement.  Owners of electric easements may assess fees and impose reasonable conditions on the use of its facilities within an easement.
