On July 10, 2019, NTCA filed comments with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) supporting a Petition for Clarification or Declaratory Ruling filed by Northeast Iowa Telephone Company and Western Iowa Telephone Association. The petition noted disparities between USAC's HUBB FAQ "definition" of locations that share the same property as a residence and the Commission's rules and orders. NTCA recommended the Commission direct USAC to modify the FAQ to strike a balance between accountability and flexibility that reflects rural realities and is consistent with the Commission's rules and orders.
