WASHINGTON A Republican senator will unveil a rewrite of U.S. telecommunications laws on Wednesday (July 27).
Sen. John Ensign, R-Nev., said he will introduce the Broadband Consumer Choice Act of 2005 during a Capitol Hill press conference.
"The bill will improve consumers’ access to communication technology by rewriting outdated telecommunications laws," Ensign's office said in a statement. "One of the bill’s goals is to reduce government obstacles to technological innovation and expansion."
The proposed legislation would replace the Telecommunications Act of 1996.
