OK Congressmen Opposed to Funding Caps
that Could Hurt Rural Cell Coverage (Aug 29, 2007)

Getting cell phone service in some rural parts of Oklahoma may soon become harder. The Federal Communications Commission wants to freeze the budget for the Universal Service Fund, a program that provides funding for wireless communications in areas with low populations. Yesterday on KGOU we heard from a resident of the tiny town of Cloudy, in mountainous Pushmataha County, which could be affected by the budget cap. Today we look at reaction from Oklahomaís Congressional delegation. Guests include US Representatives Tom Cole and Frank Lucas, FCC Chairman Kevin Martin, wireless carrier spokesperson David LaFuria and Thomas Navin, Chief of the FCCís Wire Line Competition Bureau.
