Sorenson Communications Supports Term Extension of FCC Chairman Martin
SALT LAKE CITY –(Business Wire)– April 25, 2006 — Sorenson Communications, the nation's leading provider of video relay services (VRS) and equipment for the deaf community, applauds President Bush's intent to nominate Kevin Martin as chairman of the Federal Communications Commission for an additional five-year term, which would continue on until June 30, 2011.
Ron Burdett, vice president of community relations for Sorenson Communications, commented on the upcoming nomination:
"Re-nominating Kevin Martin for an additional term as chairman of the FCC is a highly commendable action by President Bush. As chairman of the FCC, Kevin Martin has drastically and positively altered the landscape of relay communications for the deaf and hard-of-hearing community. Further, he has also been a strong advocate for guaranteeing public safety, particularly in ensuring the availability of E911 Emergency Services for all Americans. We have welcomed his influence in our industry and look forward to continuing to work with Chairman Martin on the critical issues facing the deaf and hard-of-hearing as we move forward."
Sorenson Communications continues to support the FCC and Chairman Martin on efforts to break down communication barriers. Chairman Martin's willingness to meet with deaf community leaders on key issues and support of industry issues has ushered in a new era of communications for the 28 million deaf and hard-of-hearing individuals in America.
