House and Senate Leaders send letter to FCC

On January 30, 2014, House and Senate leaders released an open letter to FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler and expressed their concerns with the potential cost E-rate reform.  In it, they encouraged the FCC to use the Joint Board on Universal Service to assist with E-rate reform and in evaluating the ultimate cost to the consumer. In the letter to Chairman Wheeler, it is noted that the contribution factor has increased over the years and this cost is passed along to consumers. These Congressional leaders are asking the FCC to “ensure that money is spent wisely and that these funds are allocated appropriately and effectively”.

The press release regarding the letter and a full copy of the letter to Chairman Wheeler can be found here.
