House E&C Subcommittee Moves FCC Reauthorization Forward


The Subcommittee on Communications and Technology, chaired by Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.), is moving forward with a markup of a FCC reauthorization bill by bringing it to the full House Energy & Commerce Committee.

The shift from the Subcommittee to the full Committee came via a unanimous voice vote this afternoon at a 30-minute hearing overseen by Blackburn at the Rayburn House Office Building on the south side of Capitol Hill.
