FCC probe

December 5, 2007

The US Federal Communications Commission is being investigated by the House Energy & Commerce Subcommittee on Oversight, prompted by criticisms of the FCC’s processes and what one official described as a “breakdown in proper procedure.” The committee informed FCC chairman Kevin Martin and the other commissioners of concerns saying that it wanted the chairman to commit to publishing proposed rules in advance of commission meetings, then allow for “sufficient time to review” the rules and give other commissioners “all of the relevant information on which proposed orders and rules are based.”
