This past year has seen a whirlwind of new FCC regulations and, in some cases, state legislation, limiting local governments' ability to manage wireless facilities in the public rights-of-way. The FCC's Third Report and Order of 2018 has altered the regulatory landscape and has forced local governments to change their methods of managing these facilities. This session will address the key highlights and local interpretations of the Order, the status of the litigation challenging the Order, and will conclude with recommendations for asserting municipal rights to manage the rights-of-way consistent with current federal and state law.

Reaching all those not connected to cable and the internet is a top priority for local governments. What successful initiatives are currently in place that can be adopted by other communities? Are there lessons to be learned from the implementation processes? How can governments work collaboratively with private industry and non-profits to enhance benefits to the underserved?
