Chairman Pai Institutes Greater Transparency

According to a report by TVNewsCheck, FCC Chairman Pai on February 7, released a “process reform measure” that changes previous commission procedure that he said he has sometimes found “inappropriate and disrespectful.”

Pai said, “I started a pilot program under which the Federal Communications Commission publicly released the text of two items to be voted upon at the agency’s upcoming Feb. 23 meeting. This program is designed to give Americans greater insight into the commission’s thinking about meeting items.  Accordingly, I pledge that during my tenure as chairman, my office will share with every commissioner’s office every item that will be considered at an open meeting before anyone in my office discusses the content of those items publicly or the FCC releases the text of those documents.”
