Today, Reps. Panetta and Kelly Introduced Bipartisan Legislation to Exempt Broadband Grants from Taxation.
The following statement can be attributed to USTelecom President and CEO Jonathan Spalter:
“Representative Panetta’s and Kelly’s bill to eliminate the counter-productive tax on broadband grants is right on the money. Closing the digital divide in America – especially in our hardest-to-reach rural communities – will require every cent of the $65 billion Congress has dedicated for that critical purpose. The dream of a truly connected nation is within reach, failure is not an option.
America’s broadband providers are all in and are doing our part. For its part, Congress must act to eliminate the tax, and this bill is the right place to start.”
