PITTSBURGH, January 20, 2011 – “The American Cable Association congratulates Rep. Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.) on being elected to her party’s top leadership position on the House Communications and Technology Subcommittee. In a time of upheaval and uncertainty in the market, having a person of high purpose and steady commitment like Rep. Eshoo in a key public policy role is reassuring news to ACA members, who have long enjoyed a close, two-way exchange with her on the unfair cost burdens that disproportionate regulations impose on the small operator community.
“As the subcommittee begins work on its agenda in its customary bipartisan fashion, ACA looks forward to continuing its positive dialogue with Rep. Eshoo, knowing her as someone who has a deep understanding of the many critical issues facing small cable providers in the months ahead, including retransmission consent reform, Universal Service reform, Internet privacy and the repurposing of highly valuable TV spectrum for new broadband uses.”
