Representatives Introduce FCC Reform Bill
Washington - Apr 30, 2009 - U.S. Reps. Joe Barton (R-TX), ranking member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, and Cliff Stearns (R-FL), introduced H.R. 2183, a bill that would reform some of the Federal Communications Commission's regulatory processes. Barton made the following statement on the bill:
"Today I, along with Mr. Stearns, introduce legislation designed to reform some of the Federal Communications Commission's byzantine regulatory processes. As the pace of competition and technological change increases in our country's communications markets, sound decision-making at the FCC and faith in how it makes those decisions become all the more important. Not only are the issues far more complex, they affect far more Americans and American businesses than ever before. The bill would do much to improve the quality of the FCC's decisions and the country's trust in the agency."
