...
"The Keep USF Fair Coalition believes all users of communications should pay their fair share to maintain a strong and stable USF system, and applauds the Rural Caucus for lending its voice to this important issue," said Gabriela Lemus, Director of Policy and Legislation for the League of United Latin American Citizens and Keep USF Fair Coalition Co-Chair."Low-volume and low-income users should not be disproportionately burdened."
The FCC currently has under consideration alternative methodologies for calculating contributions to the USF. specially detrimental to low-income and low volume users would be the per-number collection proposal that shifts the burden from a fair "pay for what you use" arrangement, to a flat fee system that would serve as a de facto tax increase ranging from 1,233 percent (at $1 per month per line) to 2,567 percent (at $2 per month per line) for low-volume users.
"Simply put, the FCC should not shift the burden of paying for the USF from corporations and heavy phone users to people who make a few long distance calls a month," added Ms. Lemus.
