Statement of NCTA Regarding Markup of the DOTCOM Act

“We applaud the efforts of Rep. Shimkus, Ranking Member Pallone and the entire House Communications and Technology Subcommittee to reach bipartisan consensus on the DOTCOM Act (HR 805).

Statement of NCTA President & CEO Michael Powell Regarding House Passage of the Permanent Internet Tax Freedom Act

“We applaud Chairman Goodlatte and Ranking Member Eshoo on today’s House passage of the Permanent Internet Tax Freedom Act (HR 235). The bill will finally make permanent the current moratorium on burdensome state and local taxes on Internet access. By preventing these taxes, the bill keeps down the cost of connectivity, enabling more American consumers and businesses to join the online world and the Internet to continue to power U.S. economic growth. We urge the Senate to quickly pass its companion legislation so this tax moratorium can finally become permanent.”
