Chaffetz Responds to Agreement between Wireless Carriers and FCC

Dec 12, 2013

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Jason Chaffetz released the following statement today in response to the agreement reached between U.S. wireless carriers and the Federal Communication Commission (FCC):

“This agreement is a partial win for consumers. I applaud Chairman Wheeler and the Commission for their efforts. However, the process that necessitated the FCC having to take action remains heavily flawed.  I look forward to working with Chairman Goodlatte to help advance legislation that will remove the threat of felony charges for unlocking a cell phone.  As the Committee moves forward with its copyright review process, I am committed to working on the broader issue of ownership in a digital age.”
