Amend the resolve by striking out all of section 1 and inserting the following:

Sec. 1. Direction to report. Resolved: That in 2020, 2021 and 2022 the ConnectME Authority established under the Maine Revised Statutes, Title 35-A, section 9203 shall include in its annual report due January 15th to the joint standing committee of the Legislature having jurisdiction over energy, utilities and technology matters, as required under Title 35-A, section 9208, information outlining the progress of the authority in meeting the goals of its Detailed 2019-2021 Strategic Plan for Broadband Service in Maine developed pursuant to Title 35-A, section 9218, including but not limited to an explanation of the measures that the authority has taken to:

1. Build partnerships with private businesses and state, county and municipal planning organizations, including but not limited to regional transportation planning authorities; and

2. Coordinate and communicate with the Department of Transportation in order to facilitate the installation of broadband infrastructure along roadways.’

Amend the resolve by relettering or renumbering any nonconsecutive Part letter or section number to read consecutively.


This amendment incorporates and aligns the reporting requirement in the resolve with the ConnectME Authority annual report, instead of requiring a separate report to the Legislature on the progress on the strategic plan.
