Improving FCC Process Reform

Free State Foundation President Randolph J. May testified at a hearing on “Improving FCC Process” before the House Subcommittee on Communications and Technology, Committee on Energy and Commerce, on July 11, 2013. He commended the Committee for undertaking the effort to reform the FCC's processes and its decision-making approaches. Mr. May supported the proposed reforms in the Discussion Drafts that, along with his additional proposals, would make the FCC less likely to default so often to regulatory measures, even absent clear and convincing evidence of market failure or consumer harm.
