The Regulatory/Legislative Committee tracks pending proceedings before the Federal Communications Commission, the Department of Justice, state regulatory agencies and the courts, and discusses how these proceedings will affect COMPTEL members' day-to-day and long-term business operations. In addition, the Committee monitors the U.S. Congress and tracks Congressional oversight of the FCC's implementation of the 1996 Telecommunications Act. The Committee also organizes strategically timed letters, briefings and visits to Capitol Hill. Further, the Committee works closely with our advocacy partners at the state level, such as the California Association of Competitive Telecommunications Companies (CALTEL), CompSouth, and TEXALTEL.
