All these programs sound like a good use of this federal funds(taxes)added to our phone bills monthly, but there still should be regular audits done to ensure these funds are being used accurately and properly. We're talking about a lot of funds, billons of dollars, and these funds are constantly is being increased under the guise of the federal Universal Service. How are the funds dissimminated into the public and private sector? How much of the funds go into federal grant programs and how are those programs regulated? Do all the funds collected in Oklahoma stay in Oklahoma?
If they are transparent then they can't skim off the top, people would know they are not being truthful
