Veto Message

Governor Blanco's veto message is now up on the web. Take a look--what she ends up endorsing is everyone collaborating on a model local ordinance.

Sounds interesting--and like a real win for local communities.

It's worth noting that as bad a policy as this bill would have made--so it seemed utterly sensible to veto it from the point of view of supporting local communities and not entrenching the digital divide--it wasn't easy for the governor to decide to override the legislature on this; important political supporters--not the least BellSouth itself--urged her otherwise. A note of thanks would always be in order. (She's gonna get a bunch of the other sorts of letters...) You can sound off in suport at: contact@gov.state.la.us
