Reps. Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.) and Collin Peterson (D-Minn.) led more than 30 House lawmakers in pressing the FCC on what they call a “budget shortfall” in parts of the agency’s universal service funds. Some telecom companies face “strict” budget caps that “limit broadband infrastructure investments in nearly 40 percent of rural America,” they wrote in a letter released Tuesday. The lawmakers “strongly urge” Chairman Ajit Pai “to maintain level collections from telecommunications companies into the future.”
