Randolph May Calls for the FCC to Adopt Rebuttable Presumptions

On January 21, 2018, The Regulatory Review published Free State Foundation President Randolph May's opinion piece titled "Adopting Rebuttable Presumptions at the FCC."  

Given the increasingly competitive communications marketplace and ongoing technological dynamism facilitating development of new service offerings, Randolph May calls for the Federal Communications Commission to adopt rebuttable evidentiary presumptions that tilt towards the non-enforcement and repeal or modification of obsolete regulations. This fairly modest process reform would be consistent with Sections 10 and 11 of the Telecommunications Act of 1996.
