Western Governors support FCC efforts to promote flexibility within its E-Rate Program

Western Governors support efforts to promote flexibility within the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) E-Rate Program. The Governors shared their backing in April 5, 2021 outreach providing input on the FCC's Proposed Rule, Wireline Competition Bureau Seeks Comment on Emergency Connectivity Fund for Education Connections and Devices To Address the Homework Gap During the Pandemic. "The use of these funds for education connections and devices will allow students to continue learning in remote environments and provide needed assistance to disconnected areas," asserted the letter signed by WGA Executive Director Jim Ogsbury. "WGA recognizes FCC’s critical role in expanding broadband connectivity and closing the digital divide (and we) encourage you to consider Western Governors as vitally interested partners."
