eRate, as envisioned when it was created in 1997, is a fund the FCC manages that helps public schools and libraries get discounted Internet services and computing devices. But has it done enough? Many, including FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel and President Obama, believe more can be done.  

Comm Rosenworcel's Legal Advisor Priscilla Argeris joins us to present an informative break down of the reforms that the FCC is pursuing. Argeris explains how these changes, enhancements, and so forth will or could have an impact on communities pushing for better broadband networks.

Whether communities own their infrastructure or are building out infrastructure in partnership with private-sector companies, they need to follow these reform developments closely. Argeris leaves the audience with clear ideas about how they can participate in and influence the reform process.
