The House Energy and Commerce committee passed an FCC Transparency bill and voice voted an approval for the:
FCC Process Reform Act.
After the FCC's somewhat questionable way it handled it's ''Net Neutrality' rules, house lawmakers wanted to a sure that the FCC doesn't meet in secret without public knowledge or notification of its agenda.
The legislation requires 3 things:
- The FCC must publish the text of any action it considers no later than 24 hours after the commissioners have have been given the documents by the FCC Chair.
- The FCC must publish a description of any order completed at the bureau level.
- When the FCC a changes any of its own rules, they have to be published.
