Obama to Sign Executive Order for Streamlining Approval of Internet Networks

Obama will sign an executive order on Thursday to streamline the approval process for broadband Internet networks built on Unites State's federal property and roads. Brendan Sasso of the Hill reports: "Currently, the process for approving broadband construction projects on federal property varies from agency to agency. Property controlled by the federal government includes roads, about 30 percent of the nation's land and more than 10,000 buildings. The order will require the Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, Interior, Transportation and Veterans Affairs as well as the Postal Service to develop a single process for approving Internet construction projects."
