The American Cable Association has added House Majority Whip Steve Scalise to its Summit lineup.
Scalise (R-La.) will speak March 5 to the assemblage of small and medium-sized cable operators gathered in Washington.
“As the author of pathbreaking legislation that started the movement to update our communications laws, Rep. Steve Scalise has a deep understanding of the issues that ACA members care about the most," said ACA president Matt Polka.
Legislators already lined up to address the operators include Rep. Greg Walden (R-Ore.), chairman of the House Communications Subcommittee; Rep. Peter Welch (D-Vt.), member of the Senate Communications Subcommittee; and Rep. Bob Latta (R-Ohio), co-founder of the Bipartisan Rural Telecommunications Working Group.
The Summit is being held at Washington's Grand Hyatt hotel March 3-5.
