The broadband deployment board (board) awards grants for the

provision of broadband service in unserved areas of the state, which are
areas deemed to have insufficient broadband service. The bill requires
that an applicant for grant money from the board submit to the board a
written certification from the local entity with jurisdiction over the area
that the applicant proposes to serve certifying that the area is an unserved
area. The board is required, both when initially considering the
application and on appeal, to give substantial weight to a local entity's
written certification that an area is an unserved area and, after reviewing
all of the evidence regarding an application, may reject the conclusion of
the written certification only upon the vote of at least 10 of the 15 voting
members of the board.
