Community Broadband Action Alert reports (via Adina Levin at the Community Broadband Coalition):

This coming Tuesday [February 14, 2006], the Senate Commerce Committee is holding a hearing on municipal broadband. It is critical for the committee to hear from you — the people who are making community broadband work, and who are bringing the benefits to your community.

Please call, fax, or email your Senator and ask them to support the Community Broadband Act. The bill, cosponsored by Senators Frank Lautenberg (D, NJ) and John McCain (R, AZ) protects the rights of local government to support broadband access in the manner that is best for local needs.

Contact information to fax and email members of the Senate Commerce Committee and a sample form letter are avaialble at Read the Community Broadband Act of 2005 at the Library of Congress website.
