Governor Scott Walker signed SS SB13 into law today which is aimed at modernizing Wisconsin’s telecommunications infrastructure.
“This law will allow the telecommunications industry to better serve Wisconsin’s consumers and it will spur economic growth and job creation,” Governor Scott Walker said. “I thank Senator Rich Zipperer and Representative Mark Honadel for their leadership on this bipartisan piece of legislation.”
SS SB13 expands consumer access to modernized telecommunications services including internet and broadband, fosters competition for services, streamlines Wisconsin’s outdated regulatory environment by recognizing technological advancement in the industry, and expands economic opportunities for jobs in advancing telecommunication fields.
