Summary
  • Two landmark bills have passed easily through the House but may face greater difficulty in the Senate. The first would allow the Regional Bell Holding Companies (RBHCs) to provide long-distance telephone and other services and to manufacture equipment. The second would enable local telephone companies to compete directly with cable companies. The bills passed with votes of 423 to five and 423 to four. Obstacles in the Senate include the upcoming Aug 11, 1994 recess deadline and difficulty revising the bills to meet industry concerns. If the bills do pass, a Senate-House conference committee would still need to reconcile differences between the House and Senate versions, and both chambers would need to vote again in fall 1994. Some of the industry criticism comes from the RBHCs because the one bill does not allow them to enter the long distance business until they face competition over local telephone business.
