Meeting with New FCC Commissioners to Discuss Broadband, Spectrum


Location: Unknown

On Tuesday, I met with new FCC Commissioners Ajit Pai and Jessica Rosenworcel to discuss a range of issues including rural broadband and spectrum. Commissioner Pai visited Kansas last week and joined me for a roundtable with rural telephone companies and learned about the challenges they face following a recent decision by the FCC to reform the Universal Service Fund. I used this meeting as an opportunity to encourage the commissioners - both of which were not at the FCC at the time the order was approved - to take into consideration these challenges and to stress the need for greater regulatory certainty to provide telecommunications companies and ability to make investments and serve Kansans.
