SHLB Urges Grant of Petition for Waiver of E-rate Special Construction Projects Deadline

The SHLB Coalition spoke with acting Chairwoman Rosenworcel’s acting legal advisor on June 15, 2021, regarding its petition seeking a waiver for special construction projects with a June 30, 2021 implementation deadline. SHLB asserted granting the waiver will not harm any other applicant or the E-rate program. It also said there are numerous funding requests still pending from prior funding years so allowing applicants additional time would not affect administration of the program.
