“We applaud Chairmen Upton and Walden, Ranking Members Waxman and Eshoo and the entire subcommittee for their bipartisan efforts to advance the STELA draft on to the full committee. We are especially pleased that committee members have worked collaboratively to eliminate the FCC’s Integration Ban, an unnecessary rule that has increased significantly both the cost and energy consumption of cable leased set-top boxes while offering no consumer benefit. We look forward to working with the full committee on this important legislation.”
