CCA Congratulates Senator Wicker as New Chairman of the Commerce Committee
Washington, DC – January 9, 2019 – Today, Senator Roger Wicker (R-MS) was elected to serve as the new Chairman of the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation. Competitive Carriers Association (“CCA”) congratulates Senator Wicker and looks forward to continued work with the Chairman and the entire Committee on issues most important to competitive carriers.
“I extend a huge congratulations to Senator Wicker for being named the new Chairman of the Commerce Committee,” said CCA President & CEO Steven K. Berry. “Senator Wicker’s vast experience and industry knowledge make him an excellent choice to fill the position. His deep understanding about what it takes to bring advanced broadband services to rural areas and his work on important issues including Universal Service Fund reform, broadband deployment, access to spectrum, and advancing telehealth services are absolutely critical issues for competitive carriers – especially those serving remote and hard-to-reach locations. I have no doubt he will keep forging ahead until every American has access to the robust services they need and desire, and I look forward to continued work with the Chairman and the entire Committee on its work to close the digital divide.”
CCA is the nation’s leading association for competitive wireless providers and stakeholders across the United States. The licensed service area of CCA’s nearly 100 carrier members covers 95 percent of the nation. Visit www.ccamobile.org.
