TIA Calls for Congress to Support Broadband Grant Tax Treatment Act Brought by Senators Warner and Moran

Arlington, VA (February 17, 2023) – The Telecommunications Industry Association—the trusted industry association for the connected world—is supporting the Broadband Grant Tax Treatment Act led by Senators Warner and Moran and has issued the following statement:


“The Broadband Grant Tax Treatment Act is a common sense, bipartisan solution and a swift passage will ensure that the BEAD Program funding Congress appropriated via the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act will be used for its intended purpose,” said Melissa Newman, vice president of government affairs at TIA.

“Bridging the digital divide and delivering reliable, high-speed broadband is what the BEAD Program is designed to do, and taxing the grant funds would be counterproductive to the objective of this investment in America’s infrastructure.”

“TIA remains committed to working with the Federal Government, State Governments, and our industry to help prepare for the BEAD Program by hosting the BEAD Success Summit this April in Arlington, Virginia.”
