House Judiciary Committee to Present Bill to Expand, Enhance Broadband Access

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – Delegate Roger Hanshaw, R-Clay and Vice-Chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, will host a presentation in the House Chamber to discuss House Bill 3093, which will establish statewide Broadband Enhancement and Expansion Policies to encourage growth of high-speed internet access across the state.

WHEN: 8:30 a.m., Thursday, March 16, 2017
