The Subcommittee on Communications and Technology, chaired by Rep. Greg Walden (R-OR), has scheduled a hearing for Tuesday, November 17, at 10:15 a.m. in room 2123 of the Rayburn House Office Building. The hearing is entitled, “Oversight of the Federal Communications Commission.”
All five FCC Commissioners are scheduled to appear as the subcommittee looks forward to an update on the commission’s work on the upcoming incentive auction, the open Internet order, video reforms, and the status of process reform efforts.
“At its best, the FCC can help foster innovation, competition, job creation, and consumer access to 21st century technologies. That’s why we must make sure that the commission is being held to the highest standards of transparency and accountability, and has the tools it needs to serve the American people,” said Walden. “Next week’s hearing gives our panel a chance to better understand the commission’s track record as well as discuss ways to help them better serve the public.”
The Majority Memorandum and witness testimony will be available here as they are posted.
