House Passes FCC Report Consolidation BillBill Consolidates Various FCC Reports, including Cable Pricing, Video Competition 9/10/2013 12:05 PM Eastern
That is the bipartisan bill that consolidates eight FCC annual reports on Congress, including its cable price and video competition reviews, into a single biennial report.
FCC commissioner Ajit Pai praised the House and Energy & Commerce Committee for advancing the legislation.
"The FCC's reporting requirements are numerous, outdated, and unnecessarily burdensome," Pai said. "Replacing them with a single biennial Communications Marketplace Report will not only enable more efficient use of agency resources, it will also provide Congress and the public with a comprehensive and far more useful set of data that reflects the realities of today's converged marketplace."
