The Digital Age Communications Act Project was introduced in February of 2005 with the ultimate aim of crafting policy that is adaptive to the frequently changing communications landscape. The Progress & Freedom Foundation gathered over 50 leading scholars to craft model regulation in five policy areas: Regulatory Framework, Spectrum Policy, Institutional Reform, Universal Service/Social Policy, and Federal/State Framework. Each working group published collaborative reports intended to guide regulators and legislators in their efforts to reform communications laws. In 2005, Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC) introduced communications reform legislation based on the suggestions of the working groups. Senate bill 2113, the "Digital Age Communications Act of 2005," sought to establish a market-oriented, competition based communications policy.
