Short Take: FCC Reorganizes Universal Service Fund

The Federal Communications Commission has voted to revise the way the nation's Universal Service Fund is administered. Groups that oversee programs subsidizing rural heath care and Internet hookups for schools libraries will be folded into another body that focuses on telephone service for rural and poor areas. The programs are funded by surcharges on long-distance telephone calls.
