FCC Commended For Proposal

 WASHINGTON  -- In response to Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Genachowski's announcement of a proposed middle ground on Internet regulation, Fabian Nunez, Speaker Emeritus of the California State Assembly, released the following statement:

"I commend the FCC and Chairman Genachowski for taking a step forward and pursuing a plan that avoids extreme net neutrality measures that would make it difficult for more Americans to get online.  Minority families, students and workers need broadband to improve their economic status and to enjoy all the rights and privileges enabled by a high-speed Internet connection.  Broadband is especially important to Hispanic Californians, as it can help us overcome the serious unemployment challenges we face."   

Fabian Nunez is honorary co-chairman of the Internet Innovation Alliance Broadband Ambassador Program.
