November 5, 2013

WASHINGTON, DC – House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Communications and Technology Chairman Greg Walden (R-OR) today issued the following statement responding to FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler’s blog post, which included an announcement that he will be considering proposals “regarding the way in which the FCC conducts business.”

"I welcome Chairman Wheeler's openness to looking at ways to improve transparency and accountability for the American people and those that have business before the commission,” said Walden. “In the meantime, we will continue working to reach bipartisan agreement on the FCC Process Reform Act, and similarly hope that the Senate will soon take up the FCC Consolidated Reporting Act, which was unanimously approved by the House this summer."
