NAB Statement on Reps. Upton & Walden's Proposal to Review Telecom Policy

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In response to a proposal by House Energy & Commerce Committee Chairman Fred Upton and Communications & Technology Subcommittee Chairman Greg Walden to review and update the country's communications policy, the following statement can be attributed to NAB President and CEO Gordon Smith:

"NAB salutes the vision of Chairmen Upton and Walden in proposing a holistic review of U.S. telecommunications policy. There can be little doubt that in this multichannel, multiplatform communications world, local broadcasting remains the essential and indispensable programming source in every American community. We look forward to working with Chairmen Upton and Walden and other members of the Energy & Commerce committee as they consider telecom legislation that sustains a robust future for local broadcasting."
