Common Cause Statement on Municipal Broadband Decision by Sixth Circuit

Common Cause

Today’s decision to reverse the Federal Communications Commission’s preemption of anti-municipal broadband laws is a setback for the public interest, Common Cause said today.

“Let’s be clear: industry-backed state laws to block municipal broadband only exist because pliant legislators are listening to their Big Cable and Big Telecom paymasters. These corporate providers invest in campaign contributions rather than in deploying high-quality broadband,” Common Cause Special Adviser Michael Copps said.
