The Kansas Senate has introduced SB 304 which makes it illegal for cities and counties to build broadband networks. It also makes it illegal for them to participate in joint ventures like Google Fiber.
Please take a moment to read about it and to take action to let your legislators know what an awful idea this is:
This is very important. Without access to municipal facilities and fiber, projects like ours are simply not possible. This bill will effectively kill all municipal networks in Kansas and will cede the entire telecommunications industry to the incumbent phone and cable providers.
