HB 129 (3R) - Level Playing Field/Local Gov’t Competition

This bill ensures that where there is competition between the private sector and government a framework is set up to not discourage private investment and job creation. It requires municipalities that want to operate their own cable systems to take steps to make them more transparent and to not operate them with taxpayer subsidies. Civitas believes the conservative position is to protect jobs and promote investment by ensuring private enterprises are treated fairly within the market.
