Sens. Luján, Thune Announce Bipartisan Working Group on the Universal Service Fund and Broadband Access
Senators Ben Ray Luján (D-NM) and John Thune (R-SD) announced a bipartisan Senate working group to evaluate and propose potential reforms to the Universal Service Fund (USF). The goal of this working group is to create a bipartisan forum to guide education, awareness, and policy-making on this topic. Joining Senators Luján and Thune are Senators Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), Gary Peters (D-MI), and Jerry Moran (R-KS). Specifically, the working group will consider the current state of the universal service requirements at the Federal Communications Commission and consider possible reforms to ensure the FCC is able to achieve its mission to promote and preserve universal service to all people of the US.
