Oct. 28, 2019, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement praising Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai’s decision to hold a vote on whether to block use of the $8.5 billion Universal Service Fund from being used by companies to do business with Huawei and ZTE:

“Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai has demonstrated once again that he and the Trump administration are willing to lead the fight in protecting America from China’s technological takeover. The FCC’s decision to consider whether to prohibit companies that do business with Huawei and ZTE from accessing the $8.5 billion Universal Service Fund is an important step in protecting the United States’ technological infrastructure from Chinese dependency. Chairman Pai is absolutely right to move forward with this important reform and all of America owes him and the FCC a debt of gratitude for this forward thinking approach as we face a 5G future.”
