STATEMENT OF FCC COMMISSIONER AJIT PAI
WELCOMING EFFORTS TO MAKE THE FCC MORE TRANSPARENT
I commend the continued work of the Communications and Technology Subcommittee of the U.S. House of Representatives Energy and Commerce Committee to ensure good process and bring greater transparency to the Federal Communications Commission. The American people are too often left in the dark when it comes to agency decision-making. In the meantime, favored special interests are able to gain access to “non-public” information. This is wrong. The American people have a right to know what their government is doing, and I look forward to working with Congress and my colleagues to make sure that happens.
