Net Neutrality Puts Time Crunch on Telecom Agenda
Time is running out for Congress to pass several telecommunications rule changes this year because the changes are tied to another contentious issue: network neutrality.
Since net neutrality is holding the telecommunications agenda hostage, the idea of compromise legislation is catching on.
"As sand runs out of the hour glass, compromises are reached," said Thaddeus Strom, vice president of congressional relations for Parry, Romani, DeConcini & Symms.
Panelists at Cowen and Company's Technology Conference in New York City said Friday that providers have about 20 days to push for changes to cable franchising rules and universal service fees.
"It's a question of finding floor time," said Strom, whose powerful lobbying firm represents Verizon.
