Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski has announced the launch of a Universal Service Working Group to provide a comprehensive, collaborative approach to the FCC’s reform of universal service programs. The working group will be led by Sharon Gillett, chief of the Wireline Competition Bureau, and will include participation by the Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau, the International Bureau, the Office of General Counsel, the Office of Managing Director, the Office of Strategic Planning, the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau, and the Wireline Competition Bureau.

“Modernizing universal service programs to bring the benefits of broadband to all Americans is one of the FCC’s top priorities and a key pillar of the National Broadband Plan,” said Genachowski.
