FCC Process Reform Bill

Yesterday the House passed the FCC Process Reform bill in a 247 - 174 vote, largely along party lines. Not very likely that Senate will even take it up, which is a shame. But the bill lays down a good marker for ongoing efforts to reform the FCC.

Back in June 2011, I testified at a hearing before the House Commerce Committee on the bill. While I questioned the need for a couple of its provisions, my testimony, on the whole, was genrally favorable towards most of the bill. My testimony is here.
