From the Fairbury Journal-News:
Broadband expansion in Nebraska, particularly in rural, under-served areas, continues to be a priority for government officials both locally and statewide. On Tuesday, November 15, 2022, Senator Tom Brandt, District 32, met with Jefferson County Commissioners to discuss plans for the upcoming legislative session. Brandt said, “We will reintroduce (Legislative Bill) 460 that removes the restrictions on public power in the state of Nebraska. I think that’ll move forward.” Brandt sponsored LB 460, which was intended to authorize leasing of dark fiber and eliminate certain powers of the Public Service Commission.
