House E&C Committee Moves to Reauthorize FCC
Background: The House E&C committee today advanced Ray Baum’s Act of 2018, legislation that reauthorizes the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The Bill now moves to the full House for consideration.
The following statement is attributed to USTelecom President and CEO Jonathan Spalter:
“USTelecom is glad to see the House Energy & Commerce Committee move bipartisan legislation to reauthorize the FCC for the first time since 1990. The inclusion of process reforms and efficiency measures reflect a forward looking, 21st century approach to the oversight of our rapidly evolving communications industry.”
