How does Filtering Legislation affect E-Rate? (Word Document)
The Consolidated Appropriations Act 2001 (HR 4577) signed into law December 2000 requires libraries and schools to have in place a policy on Internet safety, including filtering technology, in order to receive Universal Services Discounts (E-Rate) or other funds to purchase computers used to access the Internet or to pay direct costs associated with accessing the Internet. Guidelines for compliance have not yet been issued by the FCC but there are some resources available to guide your efforts.
