Senators Oppose USF Cap

On September 19, 2019, a letter opposing caps on Universal Service programs was sent to FCC Chairman Ajit Pai by thirty US Senators. Calling the proposal to combine the E-rate and Rural Health Care funding caps “particularly troubling,” the letter further asserts:
“None of the USF programs should be pitted against each other and forced to vie for a piece of the pie. Moreover, the FCC’s request for comment on ‘prioritizing the funding among the four universal service programs’ violates Congress’s legislative intent in enacting the USF.”
Senator Markey’s press release may be found at, and the letter may be accessed here.
