House Members Send FCC Letter with Questions on USF/ICC Reform
Last week, nearly 40 members of the House of Representatives sent a letter to FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski with questions regarding the Commission’s efforts to reform the Universal Service Fund and the Intercarrier Compensaion system. In the letter, the members specifically ask:
- Could you describe how the FCC will specifically account for the impact any changes to USF and ICC may have on service providers who are also RUS borrowers?
- Will the FCC conduct a thorough analysis of USF and ICC changes and the potential impact of those changes on RUS brorowers’ ability to repay loans?
- And, will you conduct such an analysis before making any changes to USF and ICC rules?
A full copy of the letter is available at House USF Letter to FCC March 31 2011.
