Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ) released the following statement today after the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announced it has approved the merger of T-Mobile and Sprint:

“While I am still reviewing the decision, the dissenting statements of the Democratic commissioners raise troubling issues about the process undertaken at the FCC for drafting this approval order.  I plan to follow up with the Commission to get to the bottom of these allegations and better understand whether – and to what extent – the underlying analysis of the expert staff at the FCC was overruled during the FCC’s review of this transaction.”
