[ARCHIVED] Small Cell Legislation Update

House committee votes to send bills to summer study…

On Friday, March 8 the House Economic Matters Committee voted unanimously among those present to send both wireless small cell bills (HB 1020 and HB 654) to summer study. This is a positive step towards averting a statewide bill in 2019 that we believe is unnecessary to continue the deployment of small cells in Maryland’s municipalities.

Work is still to be done however, as the Senate Finance Committee still has its small cell bills pending. MML is working with Senators on the Committee to encourage them to refer their wireless bills to a summer study as well. In the meantime, please continue to work on aesthetic standards for your rights-of-way and please let MML know if you need assistance. Contact Bill Jorch for more information: (410) 295-9100;
