– State Rep. Kristin Phillips-Hill (R-York Township) has been named to serve on the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) Intergovernmental Advisory Committee (IAC) by commission Chairman Ajit Pai. Her term will run through March 29, 2019, and will not impact her legislative duties.
“The appointment was made through nomination, making it truly an honor to be considered worthy of serving in this capacity by my peers,” said Phillips-Hill. “I hope to use this position as a platform to reinforce the need for bringing high-speed broadband internet accessibility to unserved and underserved regions of Pennsylvania and our country.”
Phillips-Hill will be the lone Pennsylvanian on the IAC, which is being expanded from 15 to 30 members. The committee provides guidance, expertise and recommendations to the FCC on a range of telecommunication issues.
“Appointment to the committee is a tremendous opportunity to establish relationships with colleagues and exchange information with them,” Phillips-Hill added. “I can bring to the table the four-bill package of broadband internet legislation which I co-authored, share it with others and maybe even find ways to improve its chances of becoming law.”
Questions about this or any legislative issue should be directed to Phillips-Hill’s district office at (717) 428-9889 or 1-877-207-2272.
