Arkansas Code Annotated § 25-4-125 designates the director of the Arkansas Department of Information Systems to serve as the state broadband manager to coordinate the state's efforts to expand and improve broadband capacity and availability. The state broadband manager serves as the single point of contact for state agencies, boards, commissions, and constitutional officers, including without limitation the governor, Department of Education, Department of Higher Education, the Arkansas State Department of Transportation, private businesses, enterprises, broadband providers, nonprofits, governmental entities and other organizations. The legislation requires the state broadband manager to submit a report on a semiannual basis to the Arkansas Governor’s Office, Arkansas Legislative Council, and Joint Committee on Advanced Communications and Information Technology of the activities and operations of the state broadband manager for the preceding six months. The report is to be submitted on or before January 1 and July 1 of each year.
