+ - Bill in Georgia would prohibit local governments f-> 2

McGruber (1417641) writes "The Associated Press (http://www.therepublic.com/view/story/a181871b044b4b16baf1a83f8da35951/GA-XGR--Public-Broadband/) has the news that Georgia State Senate Majority Leader Chip Rogers is sponsoring a bill that "would prevent public broadband providers from paying for communication networks with tax or government revenue".

Senator Rogers claims that "The private sector is handling this exceptionally well". Local government officials disagree.

Georgia Municipal Association spokeswoman Amy Henderson says "When cities were getting involved in broadband, it was because private industry would not come there. Without that technology, they were economically disadvantaged. We feel like it is an option cities should have."
