Congress Passes Bill on FCC Rule Publication

Last week, the House Energy and Commerce Committee passed the FCC Reform bill. This week, the legislation was passed by the full U.S. House of Representatives. The bill, HR 2589, introduced by Congresswoman Renee Ellmers (R-NC) requires the FCC to publish rule changes on the same day as they are adopted and publish the changes to its website no later than 24 hours after their adoption.

Subcommittee Chairman Greg Walden (R-OR) said, “Improving the process at the FCC so that it operates in an effective and transparent manner holds the FCC accountable and targets their struggle to make its newly adopted rules available to the public in a timely fashion.”
