The Honorable Jim DeMint (R-SC), member of the Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee, keynoted "Regulatory Reform Options for Today's Digital Age," a Progress & Freedom Foundation luncheon that took place Tuesday, November 14th. The event, hosted by PFF's Digital Age Communications Act (DACA) project, marked the release of a working draft report from the project's Institutional Reform Working Group.

Earlier in 2006, Senator DeMint introduced the Digital Age Communications Act (S. 2113) in the Senate, which contained many of the market-oriented, competition-based reform concepts found in DACA working group proposals. He spoke on communications regulatory reform efforts in the Senate and his preferences for modernization. His speech was followed by a panel of experts moderated by PFF Senior Fellow and Director of Communications Policy Studies Scott Wallsten. A panel of regulatory experts discussed the broader topic of communications regulatory reform in a DACA context.
