WASHINGTON, DC – Communications and Technology Subcommittee Chairman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) today issued the following statement after Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai announced further reforms to the agency’s processes.
“For the last few years, we have been concerned that the actions of the chairman threatened the character and integrity of the FCC as a Commission. Among the most troubling was the breakdown in the communications between the commissioners and the chairman’s tendency to selectively release information to the public before sharing it with the rest of the commission,” said Chairman Blackburn. “Today’s announcement by Chairman Pai marks a return to the collegiality and cooperation between commissioners that was once the hallmark of the FCC. I applaud Chairman Pai for his commitment to restoring the public’s faith in the FCC.”
