Description

The 2021 National Lawyers Convention took place November 11-13, 2021 at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, DC. The topic of the conference was "Public and Private Power: Preserving Freedom or Preventing Harm?". This panel covered "Federalism and Broadband Spending: Finding the Right Approach."
The Covid-19 pandemic accelerated the desire for increased—indeed, universal—broadband access. This panel will focus on the infusion of federal and state funding into broadband networks. The panel will explore the ways in which states and private actors can play a role in ubiquitous deployment, the appropriate role of the FCC and other government agencies, including the USDA, NTIA, and DOE, how the FCC’s Universal Service programs can continue to facilitate deployment and adoption, and the terms that should accompany government funding distributed through states and federal agencies.
Featuring:

Hon. Brendan Carr, Commissioner, Federal Communications Commission
Hon. Eric Allan Koch, Senator and Chairman, Indiana Senate Utilities Committee, Indiana State Senate
Dr. Roslyn Layton, Senior Vice President, Strand Consult
Moderator: Hon. Steven Menashi, U.S. Court of Appeals, Second Circuit
