Forty-one Attorneys General Oppose Provisions in H.R. 5252

September 2006

Forty-one Attorneys General1 submitted a letter to Congress opposing provisions in H.R. 5252 entitled, "Advanced Telecommunications and Opportunity Reform Act," that would preempt state law and enforcement as they pertain to wireless carriers and voice over internet protocol (VOIP) service providers. The letter stresses the large number of consumer complaints about wireless telephone service and how vital it is for state Attorney General offices to continue to address these complaints. The letter also highlights the 2004 Attorney General multistate settlement with three wireless carriers that insures consumers have protections relating to service agreements and coverage areas. Lastly, the letter points out that the FCC does not have the resources to address all consumer complaints about wireless and VOIP.
