Jersey Blogger, Chris Wysocki of WyBlog fame, reminds us that the Market Competition and Consumer Choice Act (SB 2664, aka telecom deregulation) has a chance for passage in the New Jersey State Senate before the end of the lame duck legislative session on January 9. As he notes, “It’s now or never.”
The “Market Competition and Consumer Choice Act” (SB 2664) removes requirements for the Board of Public Utilities to micromanage every telecom business decision. Thanks to archaic rules established back when Marconi was an apprentice lineman the BPU has to approve even the smallest change to any phone or cable service offering. Link
If you believe that free-market competition is the way to go in the telecom industry, let your State Senator know.
