Broadband Mapping Bill, Containing Child Internet Protection Amendments, Now In Effect


On October 10, President Bush signed into law the ?Broadband Data Improvement Act,? designed to improve broadband data collection and promote the deployment of affordable broadband services.

The Act also includes provisions of the ?Protecting Children in the 21st Century Act? that, in part, create a new public awareness campaign on Internet use by children.
