FCC transparency bill passed.

 

 

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:

  1.  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.
  2. The FCC must publish a description of any order completed at the bureau level.
  3. When the FCC a changes any of its own rules, they have to be published.
