California may change how it subsidizes broadband deployment and adoption in several ways, under legislation on the table this session. Senate Bill 740 and Assembly Bill 1299 seek to expand how California grants broadband subsidies – one focusing on expanding how hundreds of millions of dollars in grant money is spent in building out the state’s broadband infrastructure, the other on connecting public housing. Some stakeholders worry about changes hurting the fund and limiting funds to the bigger players as the bills evolve.
