    The Telecommunications Act of 1996 is now 25 years old and woefully out of date. Many of the technologies and platforms that are being used today did not even exist in the public marketplace in 1996. Moreover, there has been a convergence of services (for example, video streaming) that is not recognized in federal law and can be harmful to local governments. This session will explore possible reforms that are needed to the Telecom Act that would better protect local governments. It will also address whether a legislative overhaul of the Act is possible in a Biden Administration and, if not, whether some positive changes could be achieved through other means.
