Joint Technology Committee. In 2021, the general assembly
authorized the broadband deployment board (board) to award money that
the state received under the federal American Rescue Plan Act of 2021
(act) for broadband deployment projects. The bill updates the
requirements for awarding grant money pursuant to the act to require that
applications comply with finalized federal regulations regarding use of

money under the act. The bill also:
  • Reduces the notice and comment period for an interested
party to review and comment on a grant application from
at least 60 days to 30 days;
  • Exempts a grantee from the requirement to complete an
approved project in 2 years or less if the grantee
demonstrates to the board that the project is delayed due to
a relevant disruption in the supply chain;
  • Requires the board to apply the updated requirements to
previously denied applications that sought grant awards
under the act; and
  • Establishes a process and remedies for appeals of a board
decision regarding a grant application.
