Commerce Okays FCC Reform, Reauthorization

0

SenateThe Senate Commerce Committee passed two bills related to the FCC.


One measure would reauthorize the agency for the first time in 25 years. Chairman John Thune (R-S.D.) said it’s been a priority of his to formally reauthorize the commission; he called the bill a “long-overdue, noncontroversial measure.”

An FCC process reform measure was also sent to the full Senate; it requires the agency to publish any changes made to an item after adoption.
