FCC Reform Passes One Hurdle


House-of-RepresentativesWith a voice vote, the full House passed an FCC reform bill.

Sponsored by Communications and Technology Subcommittee Chairman Greg Walden (R-OR) and Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), the measure aims to transparency, efficiency, and accountability at the agency.

“Process reform isn’t about the actions of one party, or one chairman. This is about putting rules into place that will carry over from one administration to the next, creating consistency and certainty for the many that are subject to the commission’s rules,” said Walden.

House passage was expected; The bill now goes to the Senate.
