<p class="MsoNormal">Hi,<o:p></o:p></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><br>
Just wanted to share our comments that INCOMPAS filed today for Treasury’s Interim Final Rule on State and Local Fiscal Recovery Funds.  Our position supports the push for 100/100 Mbps as much as possible and for fiber connectivity that will help support a
 number of technologies, including wired, fixed wireless, 4G and 5G mobile services, and satellite.  We also encourage that investment in infrastructure that can scale to 1 gigabit connectivity be included in Treasury’s final rule.<o:p></o:p></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><o:p> </o:p></p>
<p class="MsoNormal">Hopefully this can be helpful to the group and please use as a reference if needed.<o:p></o:p></p>
<p class="MsoNormal"><br>
Thanks,<o:p></o:p></p>
