City of Fayetteville Opposes HB1587

Yet another North Carolina City opposes HB1587! Fayetteville, NC passed a resolution against the Local Government Fair Competition Act. Here are some good bits.

WHEREAS, HB1587 is not designed to make competition fair, but to greatly hinder local governments from providing needed services where existing high quality internet services are non-existent and where private companies have chosen not to make the investment necessary to provide those services;

WHEREAS, the development of new communications technologies, high speed broadband networks and their expeditious deployment in all our communities is necessary for economic development and community growth in North Carolina into the future to replace our lost textile, tobacco, furniture and manufacturing jobs.

NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT, the City of Fayetteville, North Carolina, is against the passing of HB1587, and urges all members of the North Carolina General Assembly to vote “NO” in Committee and if necessary on the Floor of the General Assembly.
