The 20th Anniversary of The Telecom Act of 1996: The View from the Clinton-Gore Team
12 PM EST
The Telecommunications Act of 1996 was signed twenty years ago in February,1996, a far-reaching piece of legislation spanning efforts by several Congresses and affecting a major swath of the U.S. economy. It not only terminated the consent decree that broke up AT&T, but it affected nearly every part of the communications industry and arguably helped to expand access to the Internet. Some of the senior players from the Clinton-Gore Administration team who worked on the legislation discuss passage, goals, and how the legislation has performed. This is the first in a series, with a panel of key congressional players at passage next up.
* Anne Bingaman, former Assistant Attorney General for Antitrust
* Larry Irving, former Assistant Secretary of Commerce and Administrator of NTIA
* Greg Simon, former Chief Domestic Policy Advisor to Vice President Gore
* David Turetsky, former Deputy Assistant Attorney General for Antitrust
