TIA CEO Scott Belcher issued the following statement:

“These are challenging issues and we applaud members of the subcommittee for their commitment to trying to craft legislation that can win votes on both sides of the aisle. Title II regulation is a significant concern for the businesses that are driving the innovation and infrastructure development needed for modern broadband networks.
