Lifeline Letter to FCC, Filed November 8, 2017

Draft Lifeline Item’s proposals make the erroneous and dangerous assumption that the Lifeline benefit must be even further constrained in order for individuals to “value” the benefit...These proposals fail to recognize that for most poor people, paying a bill for an essential communications service may well mean forgoing food, healthcare, clothing, school supplies, and other basic necessities."
