House Energy and Commerce Committee Passes Broadband Stimulus Bill

The Computer & Communications Industry Association issuing the following statement in to the House Energy and Commerce Committee passing the broadband stimulus bill. The following response can be attributed to Ed Black, President & CEO of CCIA:

“We applaud the Committee’s actions in expeditiously passing this wise, balanced broadband deployment grant and stimulus package that will become a key component of the new administration’s economic recovery.

“There are still too many communities that need not just physical access to high speed broadband, but affordable access. This stimulus legislation can soon create jobs, and generate more online economic activity and opportunities for more Americans. The opportunity to participate in the digital economy via high speed connections to the open, public Internet is fundamental to shared prosperity and democracy. We look forward to passage by the full House and the Senate.”
