Information Technology & Communications (ITC) Federal Advocacy Committee Meeting
The Information Technology and Communications Committee is responsible for developing policy positions on and leading NLC’s advocacy on issues involving telecommunications and information systems (and public access to these systems), privacy concerns, cable TV, phone services, spectrum issues, communications tower siting, universal service, broadcasting, and defense of city rights-of-way from degradation caused by installation of communications facilities. Most recently, the Committee’s work focused on various ways localities can increase broadband access through municipal broadband, protecting local authority on technology-related tax issues such as the Internet Tax Freedom Act, and exploring the transition from old, copper-based telephone networks to digital and IP-based networks.
The meeting is open to all who are interested, but only committee members may participate in the discussion.
