The Intergovernmental Advisory
Committee brings Local, State, and
Tribal perspectives to the FCC. The
Telecommunications Act of 1996 requires
a close working relationship between the
FCC and the state, city and local governments
to expand competition in communications.
This page provides state and local governments

As part of the Telecommunications
Act of 1996, we are charged with ensuring that all Americans have
access to affordable telecommunications services. Through consumer
information, rulemaking process and educational seminars, the FCC is
working hard to promote the availability of telecommunications services
to individuals living on tribal lands, including both Indian
reservations and Alaskan Native lands.
