Scalise FCC Reform Bill Approved by E&C Committee

Feb 12, 2015

WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) issued the following statement after the Energy and Commerce Committee unanimously approved Scalise’s FCC Consolidated Reporting Act.

“Today’s vote is a crucial first step in reforming the FCC, a goal that is long overdue,” Rep. Scalise said. “My bill will not only help the FCC operate more efficiently, but it will also encourage the commission to holistically analyze competition in the marketplace, rather than basing their analysis on the outdated silos that no longer reflect the 21st century communications economy. It is time for the FCC to operate in a manner consistent with the innovative era in which we live, and I am pleased that the committee agrees.”
