Dingell Statement on Republican Energy and Commerce Announcement Regarding Communications Act

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Today, Congressman John D. Dingell (D-MI12) issued the following response to Republican Committee on Energy and Commerce leadership's announcement concerning modernizing the Communications Act:

"As the author of every major telecommunications statute for the past three decades, I caution my Republican colleagues to approach modernizing the Communications Act with great care and attention to detail. Changes should not be made simply for change's sake, but rather based on clear and documented need. I urge my colleagues to proceed in a bipartisan manner and to hold numerous hearings in order to generate the record an undertaking this substantial will require. This will affect a rapidly changing industry, with many jobs and billions of dollars in investment at stake. We should approach this in a balanced fashion in order to preserve and promote American leadership in the telecommunications industry. I am ready, willing, and able to work with my Republican and Democratic colleagues in this effort."
