As stated in HB22-1306, signed on June 2 by Governor Polis, the Broadband Deployment Board (BDB):
“...shall review each denied application received between July 1, 2021, and the effective date of this subsection (9.5)(e)(ii), in which grant money was sought pursuant to this subsection (9.5) but the application was denied on the basis that the project was not in an unserved area pursuant to subsection (9) of this section due to the board's assessment of wireless service, for compliance with the treasury department regulations in effect on the effective date of this subsection (9.5)(e)(ii). If the application complies with the treasury department regulations in effect on the effective date of this subsection (9.5)(e)(ii), the board shall award grant money to the applicant as soon as practicable, unless the proposed project that is the subject of the application has already been completed, the applicant seeks to withdraw or revise the application, or the application or proposed project is no longer eligible for grant money.”
On May 26, a subcommittee of the BDB met to discuss the re-review process described above. At this meeting, the subcommittee crafted a draft report for the BDB to review.
