Subcommittee Considers Choice of Providers Bill

A Senate subcommittee this week considered whether to push forward SSB1049, Iowa Cable’s proposed bill which would give franchised cable and video operators and Iowa telephone companies the right to provide service in multi-unit residential properties, including mobile home parks.

The subcommittee members are Sen. Brian Schoenjahn, D-Arlington, Sen. Joe Seng, D-Davenport, and Sen. Pat Ward, R-West Des Moines.

Jim Carney, for Mediacom, and Tom Graves for Iowa Cable, both told subcommittee members that the bill was an attempt to insure that customers had choice. They said some residential owners are signing exclusive deals and asking existing operators to leave the units.

Lobbyists for apartment owners and the mobile home parks testified that property owners should be able to decide which companies provide service in their units.

A second subcommittee meeting will be scheduled within the next two weeks.

Property tax bill proposed
A bill to change property taxation for telephone companies has been proposed. SSB 1051 is considered a Qwest backed bill. Iowa Cable will study the bill and its possible ramifications before deciding whether to support it.

Counties seek ICN access
The counties are again asking that they be allowed to be authorized users of the ICN. Iowa Cable has registered as opposed to the bill, SF97.

ICN Amendment Comes Out Of HF 45

The House Republican leadership withdrew an amendment Wednesday to its de-appropriations bill which worried some in the telecom industry.The amendment, in Section 20 of the bill, would have allowed “qualified providers” to lease ICN capacity and then resell it to users, even if they aren’t authorized users under the current Iowa code.

Cable and telephone lobbyists argued that the provision might allow some companies to use a subsidized network to compete with existing telephone and cable providers who had to invest in their networks.

The bill still will ask the state to put out an RFP for sale or lease of the ICN.

The bill faces an uncertain future in the Iowa Senate, where Democrats still hold a 26-24 majority.
