Latta to Host FCC Commissioner Pai in Northwest Ohio
Congressman Bob Latta (R-OH), Vice-Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Communications and Technology Subcommittee, will host FCC Commissioner Ajit Pai in Northwest Ohio on Thursday, August 14. During his visit, Congressman Latta and Commissioner Pai will hold a roundtable discussion with local telecommunications business owners and tour Toledo’s Buckeye Telesystem.
“Commissioner Pai has been a leading advocate for rural areas when it comes to building robust communications networks and delivering next-generation services to these communities,” said Latta. “His visit provides the opportunity to demonstrate how policies in Washington, D.C., directly affect Americans across the country and why continued investment in our rural areas is critical to the future growth and prosperity of our nation’s economy.”
