After more than a year of preparation, all eyes are on Capitol Hill in 2015 as Congress prepares to undertake one of its most important tasks affecting a significant part of the digital economy: rewriting the Communications Act of 1934. In keeping with the Center's staying ahead of the issues at the nexus of business and public policy, the Center's Evolution of Regulation and Innovation Project is pleased to announce the first of a series of convenings focused on eliciting the best ideas for how a new regime for the tech, media and broadband sectors should look.

Please join us on Tuesday, February 24th, as we begin our deep dive on the issues related to a rewrite of the Communications Act of 1934. A panel of experts will address the technology, economic, political, and policy contexts of the current Congressional efforts, offer different perspectives that will identify common ground among parties that will be affected by a rewrite, explore areas of significant uncertainty, and elucidate the policy drivers that will shape the work ahead.
