MEET PENNSYLVANIA BROADBAND RECEPTIONBCAP's "Meet Pennsylvania Broadband" reception for freshman House and Senate members was held February 12, 2013 at the Hilton Harrisburg, attracting a large contingent of newly-elected legislators, caucus leaders, rank-and-file members and staff. The reception concluded a successful GRIP (Grassroots Legislative Program) Day that included a member briefing, at BCAP offices, of current Capitol Hill activity impacting Pennsylvania's cable industry. A huge thank you goes out to the companies that provided product demonstrations through exhibits at the reception, including Cable Services Co., Comcast Internet Essentials, NBCUniversal, Outdoor Channel, Pace, PCN, RLTV and ROOT SPORTS. The demos gave legislators a first-hand look at cable technology and programming, and served as an invaluable supplement to GRIP members' educational efforts with Pennsylvania policymakers.
