Arlington, Va., July 23, 2010 - The National Telecommunications Cooperative Association (NTCA) has endorsed legislation proposed by Representatives Rick Boucher (D-VA) and Lee Terry (R-NE). 

NTCA CEO Shirley Bloomfield sent a letter of support to Congressman Boucher stating "We firmly believe that the Universal Reform Act of 2010 will not only help to redirect the implementation of the ill-considered universal service provisions of the [national broadband plan], but will likewise serve to transform, strengthen, and preserve the cornerstone of our national communications policy."
