Possible amendment damaging to E-rate is expected soon.
Posted on July 14, 2014 by Jeffrey Kratz
The ALA Washington Office just got off a conference call with House
Democratic Leadership regarding a possible amendment to the House Financial
Services Appropriations bill that would limit the Federal Communication
Commission’s (FCC) ability to increase funds to the Federal E-rate program.
We expect a possible amendment to be voted on the House floor sometime
within the next 48 to 72 hours.
*Please call your U.S. Representative today and encourage him or her not to
support any amendment that would thwart the FCC’s ability to increase funds
to the Federal E-rate program.*
The E-rate program is part of the Universal Service Fund, which is overseen
by the FCC. Through this program, libraries and schools receive discounts
on telecommunications services including high capacity broadband.
More information on this amendment will be posted on District Dispatch as
it becomes available.
