Verizon tells Congress to step up to the plate [telecom]

Lawmakers in Congress have largely ceded their ground to regulatory bureaucrats, the head of Verizon told legislators on Friday.

In a letter to the bipartisan leaders of the House and Senate Commerce committees, CEO Lowell McAdam lent support to congressional efforts to update the 1996 Telecommunications Act, saying the existing telecommunications laws and regulatory processes are "outdated and broken."

"It is time for Congress to re-take responsibility for policymaking in the Internet ecosystem," he wrote.
