10/11/17 Check-In Call Notes

- Jade will get back to me about citations, broadband funding, and edits on my one-pager
- I will start on the outline and contact Jane Patterson, NC DOT ITS, Chatham County, state legislators, and BIO.
- Need to clarify my research focus, especially for supporting arguments, since autonomous vehicles are an emerging field
- There have been people at Roosevelt working on rural broadband access, but maybe not specifically with MEUs and telephone cooperatives
- Parts of my proposal might not be possible to enact until necessary state legislation comes to fruition, but I should still propose it, given that NC is in the perfect place for this
