Senators seek greater funding for FCC's rural telemedicine efforts
from By Scott E. Rupp
The Washington machine is churning, and it wants more money from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for the Rural Health Care Program. More than $400 million is earmarked for the effort now, but 31 U.S. senators want the FCC to increase that annual cap to bolster telemedicine funding for rural communities. Advocates of telemedicine are likely over the moon at the possibility of even more federal support for the effort.
