HB 789 scheduled for House Vote on Wednesday

The controversial muni network ban was stripped from HB 789 in committee. The bill sponsor has indicated the ban will return. We are anticipating it will be offered as an amendment.

The Texas House is scheduled to vote on HB 789 on Wednesday, March 23. It is critical that you contact your representative and ask them to oppose re-inserting the ban.

Please call your member today and ask him or her to:

  • Help Texas cities.
  • Help the Texas economy.
  • Help bridge the digital divide (if your member is concerned about this).
  • Don't limit the growth of high-speed internet in Texas.
