Local Focus Urged For Repack Consumer Education Fund


Tuesday afternoon saw a tribute to a beloved individual who House Energy & Commerce Committee Chairman Greg Walden said “spent his life working to maintain a bipartisan spirit in facing the communications challenges we all seek to address.” It also featured a last hurrah for Senator-elect Marsha Blackburn as Chairman of the Subcommittee on Communications and Technology.
