Jim Steyer, Founder and CEO of Common Sense Media, Issues Statement on "Connecting America: Oversight of NTIA"
The Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act initiated this country's largest investment in broadband ever. It represents a bipartisan consensus that fast, affordable internet is essential for modern life. This consensus was displayed again when Congress confirmed Alan Davidson to direct the NTIA, the agency that will lead this monumental effort. I can think of no one better suited to the task than Assistant Secretary Davidson, and I applaud him and the entire NTIA staff for their public service during this critical period.
