Inouye, Stevens to Hold Telecom Road Shows

Inouye, Stevens to Hold Telecom Road Shows

Sen. Daniel Inouye of Hawaii sees a key role for himself as Congress begins re-writing the Telecom Act soon.
Inouye, ranking Democrat of the Senate Commerce Committee with the retirement of Fritz Hollings of South Carolina, tells the Honolulu Star-Bulletin that he and Republican Ted Stevens of Alaska will chair hearings across the country to hear from citizens about the rewrite. The pair plans to hold six meetings in January and February, reports the paper.
Lawmakers expect to focus on telephony for much of the rewrite, experts say.
