Generation AndTransmission Cooperative Easement Broadband
Under current law, a cooperative electric association with an electric utility easement on real property is authorized to install or to allow a commercial broadband supplier to install broadband facilities on the real property, subject to notice and procedural requirements. The bill expands the authorization to also apply to an electric generation and transmission cooperative association with an electric utility easement on real property.
The bill also authorizes the installation of new underground broadband facilities within these easements, subject to the same notice and procedural requirements.
