Tauzin-Dingell Subject of Monday Briefing
PFF's May to Answer Questions About Pending Telecom Legislation

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Progress & Freedom Foundation’s Randolph J. May will participate in a briefing, “Tauzin-Dingell: The Issues Behind the Ads,” on Monday, February 25 at 11:45 a.m. Sponsored by the Heritage Foundation, the luncheon event takes place at the Capitol Hill Club.

Also speaking will be James Gattuso, Research Fellow in Regulatory Policy, Thomas A. Roe Institute for Economic Policy Studies, the Heritage Foundation. Lawrence Whitman, also of the Roe Institute, will moderate the panel.

Those interested in attending should make reservations with Crystal Gibson of the Heritage Foundation by phone (202-608-6078) or e-mail (

In previewing his remarks, May said that “absent regulatory relief along the lines of Tauzin-Dingell, it is less likely the substantial investment in new facilities that is necessary to achieve widespread deployment of broadband will be made.”

He has published numerous articles and essays on telecom issues, and has been cited by numerous national media outlets, including The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and InteractiveWeek.
