The following statement is from NCTA President & CEO Michael Powell, regarding today’s House Subcommittee on Communications and Technology hearing on FCC Process Reform:

“We applaud Chairman Walden and other members of the committee for their work in examining FCC reform ideas that may promote greater transparency and predictability in agency decision-making.  Given today’s increasingly competitive communications landscape, we appreciate efforts by the committee -- and by the Commission -- to engage in a ‘fresh look’ at agency procedures and to free providers from unnecessary regulatory obstacles that impede the development of new, innovative consumer offerings.”
