The FCC has several pending proceedings addressing broadband deployment. The Commission is considering significant preemption of local authority likely to impact cable services. After meeting recently with FCC staff, NATOA and the National League of Cities believes the FCC assumes small cells are small and easy to deploy, justifying short shot clocks and low caps on permit costs, for example. Industry has been meeting regularly with FCC staff, so its perspective is well documented.

MACTA is urging members to submit letters clearly articulating the practical issues your local governments must address and manage, as well as opposition to preemptive action by the FCC to better illustrate how industry's proposals will impact our communities. More
