PTA President, Steven J. Samara Testifies Before Senate Transportation Committee

My name is Steven Samara, and I am the president of the PTA, a trade group which represents the interests of more than two dozen rural telcos operating in all corners of the Commonwealth. PTA members range in size from several hundred thousand access lines to less than one thousand. We pride ourselves on delivering advanced telecommunications services to very rural parts of Pennsylvania, and while we are committed to building the information superhighway in our state, we realize that the roads and bridges that make up our motoring highway need upgraded as well. Our customers, and all Pennsylvania motorists deserve safe, reliable highways and bridges on which to travel.
