We received word late Friday that Nevada Senator John Ensign has agreed to co-sponsor the Digital Age Commuincations Act bill (S. 2113) that Senator Jim DeMint introduced on Thursday. In July, Senator Ensign demonstated that he is fast becoming a congressional leader in developing market-oriented communications policy when he introduced his own communications bill. Now, it is gratifying to see that he is joining Senator DeMint in co-sponsoring DACA.
All in all a pretty good week in the cause of meaningful communications reform. Senators DeMint and Ensign, both Commerce Committee members, deserve great credit for their willingness to step forward as leaders in this worthwhile endeavor.
