WASHINGTON — On Friday, Federal Communications Commissioner Mignon Clyburn delivered a speech about the Universal Service Fund and Lifeline support at the Consumer Federation of America Consumer Assembly.

Free Press Policy Director Matt Wood made the following statement:

"It's as important as ever to ensure that everyone in our country has access to affordable communication services. Commissioner Clyburn's defense of Lifeline is a welcome reminder of this core universal service principle. As the Commission continues to reform and modernize the fund, it must retain its focus on efficiently connecting all eligible individuals and families — not propping up certain business models or legacy providers."
