DACA Revises Federal-State Framework

[SOURCE: Progress & Freedom Foundation press release]
Responding to a wide array of input following the release of a draft proposal on a framework for federal and state regulation of communications, members of the Digital Age Communications Act (DACA) Federal-State Framework Working Group have released a second draft for review and comment. This latest iteration clarifies the role of states in rate regulation, provides two avenues for competition policy, and sets limits on the role of states in regulating social obligations. It also includes details on the appropriate role of local officials, specifically involving rights-of-way, franchising issues, municipal entry into telecom, and the imposition of taxes. DACA is an ongoing project in which The Progress & Freedom Foundation is working with other think tanks, members of academia and former officials from the last five Presidential administrations to craft a new communications regulation model for the digital age.
