After years of serving on the disability working group on the FCC’s Consumer Advisory Committee, HLAA is pleased to report that FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler announced the creation of a dedicated Disability Advisory Committee (DAC) at the FCC. The DAC will make recommendations to the Commission on disability issues within the jurisdiction of the FCC. Chairman Wheeler made this announcement at the FCC's National Disability Employment Awareness Month Panel Discussions on Thursday, October 30, 2014. HLAA applauds Wheeler’s commitment to continued work on disability issues at the FCC. Watch for the FCC’s Public Notice announcing the establishment of the DAC and seeking applications for membership.
