Thanks to advocacy efforts of the Clear2Connect Coalition, Members of Congress are continuing to join with the Coalition in making our voices are heard at the FCC.

Last week, Senators Moran (R-KS) and Tester (D-MT) sent a letter to FCC Chairman Pai echoing our concerns with ASR-only captioned telephone service. As Chairman and Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, as well as senior Members of the Senate Commerce Committee and Senate Appropriations Committee, Senators Moran and Tester have a vested interest in protecting the right of people with hearing loss to access quality captioned telephone service.

We want to thank the Senators for their commitment to the Veteran community and those with hearing loss, and for working with the Clear2Connect Coalition to advocate for access to this crucial service, which is protected by the Americans with Disabilities Act.
