Hey Marlon and John,

Well, there's lots going on.

In the House, Inslee and Blackburn have introduced their bill, the 
American Broadband for Communities Act: 
http://www.freepress.net/congress/billinfo.php?id=172


In the Senate, we have the two bills S. 2327 and S. 2332, and now 
Senator Stevens has included unlicensed spectrum in his new massive 
telecom bill. It's called the Communications, Consumers' Choice, and 
Broadband Deployment Act of 2006. It would require the FCC, within 
270 days of passage, to finish the pending white spaces proceeding. 
It says that within 270 days, “a certified unlicensed device may use 
eligible broadcast television frequencies in a manner that protects 
licensees from harmful interference.”


It also, as I understand, would extend USF to broadband though I 
don't yet have an analysis of this section. Much of USF 
implementation would be dealt with at the FCC. USF is not included in 
the big House telecom bill: 
http://www.freepress.net/congress/billinfo.php?id=169.


The question now is what happens with these two massive telecom bills 
and the separate unlicensed bill in the House.


I'll give you more information when I have it available, but please 
continue to ask if you have any questions.


Best,

Frannie

Maybe.  I've not read the bills.
