Senate Finance Committee Chairman Dan Clodfelter, D-Mecklenburg, is working on a compromise between local governments and cable companies over the highly controversial broadband bill, S1209, that would sharply limit local governments that want to build their own broadband or fiber-optic network or need to expand or repair a current network. The bill was pulled from the Senate Finance Committee meeting Wednesday; it is scheduled to be heard Tuesday, June 1 at 1 p.m.
