Congress Considers 21-Day Requirement for FCC Proposals

The proposed FCC Transparency Act (H.R. 6422) would require the Commission to publish the texts of any proposed actions on its website at least 21-days ahead of a vote. Under the proposal, the chairman of the FCC would be allowed to make emergency exceptions to the 21 day rule if the publication of such a document is deemed confidential or classified. It would also allow carve outs if the document’s publication would impose an invasion of privacy or release sensitive data.
