LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1483, as introduced, Patterson. California Broadband Council: duties.
Existing law establishes the California Broadband Council with duties that include, but are not limited to, ensuring that all relevant state agencies are made aware of actions necessary to fully implement recommendations in the 2008 Broadband Task Force Report. Executive Order N-73-20, among other things, directed the council to create a new State Broadband Action Plan by December 31, 2020, which resulted in the adoption of the 2020 Broadband for All Action Plan.
This bill would require the council to ensure that all relevant state agencies are made aware of actions necessary to fully implement recommendations in the 2020 Broadband for All Action Plan, instead of the 2008 Broadband Task Force Report.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:
