Statement of NCTA – The Internet & Television Association Regarding the Introduction of the Broadband Interagency Coordination Act of 2019

“With the internet becoming such an essential part of our lives, ensuring that every American in every community has access to a robust broadband network is vitally important. That is why NCTA and its member companies support government programs which provide funding to build these networks in unserved areas. But with up to three federal government agencies spending billions of dollars annually on these programs, real coordination and information sharing among these agencies is critical to ensure that funding is directed to where it is needed most, fund recipients are held accountable, and best practices are shared. We applaud Sens. Wicker and Klobuchar for introducing the Broadband Interagency Coordination Act of 2019 which seeks to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of federal broadband funding programs through better interagency coordination.”
