Washington, D.C. — House Energy and Commerce Committee Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) and Communications and Technology Subcommittee Chair Bob Latta (R-OH) today announced a legislative hearing titled “Oversight and Reauthorization of the National Telecommunications and Information Administration."

Chairs Rodgers and Latta released the following statement: 

“The National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) plays a key role in managing federal spectrum, deploying broadband, and advancing American telecommunications leadership. In recent years, the agency has received billions of taxpayer dollars to allocate towards getting more Americans connected. As the committee with jurisdiction over NTIA, the Energy and Commerce Committee has a responsibility to the American people to ensure these resources are being used appropriately and in a way that avoids waste, fraud, and abuse. At the same time, it is critical that the agency is adapting to meet the needs of a dynamic communications sector. We look forward to considering numerous bills to help ensure NTIA is carrying out its mission of strengthening American communications leadership and closing the digital divide.”
