Today, we are deeply saddened at the news that Senator Frank Lautenberg has just passed away. Senator Lautenberg's death is a loss for the nation as well as for our efforts to ensure communities have the authority to build Internet networks if they believe it a wise investment.
The Senator and his staff have long been a friend to local authority on these matters, making it a priority to find ways of defending and expanding the rights of local governments to build networks.
Our condolences to his family, friends, and staff. Thank you for all you have done to help our country live up to our dreams.
