LAS VEGAS–U.S. Sen. John Sununu said he’s preparing legislation to keep broadband telephone service providers from being “smothered by state and federal regulators.”

The New Hampshire Republican described the proposed law at the Consumer Electronics Show that as a “clear, pre-emptive remedy” that directs state utility regulators to take a hands-off regulatory stance on what’s called voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP). The legislation also seeks to make the Federal Communications Commission the main authority over VoIP service providers, the senator said.
