Washington, D.C. - Congressman Dave Loebsack today applauded the House passage of legislation he authored to increase transparency at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The legislation gives the public greater access to the FCC's operations by requiring them to post their policies and procedures on their website and post any changes within 48 hours. Loebsack's proposal was included in The Federal Communications Commission Process Reform Act of 2015. Loebsack is a member of the Communications and Technology Subcommittee of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, which has jurisdiction over the FCC.
"Small businesses and consumers should have as much visibility into the operations of the FCC as the big corporate interests and their high-priced lawyers," said Loebsack. "Public participation at the FCC is at an all-time high; the millions of Americans reaching out to the FCC deserve to know how the agency makes its decisions."
