U.S. House Passes Walden’s Bill to Lift Burdens on Small ISP’s

WASHINGTON, D.C- A bipartisan bill authored by Representative Greg Walden (R-Hood River) that would provide relief for small Internet service providers (ISPs) has been passed unanimously by the House.

Rep. Walden says that the legislation would protect consumers and small businesses by lessening reporting requirements for ISPs.

The Small Business Broadband Deployment Act (H.R. 4596) was introduced in reaction to new rules that many small ISPs in Oregon and nationwide said would force them to spend resources on hiring compliance attorneys rather than improving service for consumers.

The bill is expected to be signed by the President if it passes the Senate.
