The deadline to file Reply Comments on FCC’s proposed NPRM on E-rate Competitive Bidding, was last week May 27, 2022. Most of the stakeholders who filed reply comments were opposed to the proposed bidding portal. SECA noted that, the national mandatory E-rate bidding portal will preempt state procurement laws. Adding that, “Twenty-one (21) commenting parties, including agencies from nine different states, explained and provided different examples and citations as to how the bidding portal will conflict with state law”
