House Communications and Technology Subcommittee Chairman GREG WALDEN (R-OR) has set an FCC oversight hearing for DECEMBER 12th to hear testimony from all five FCC commissioners.
WALDEN said, “With the recent confirmations of Chairman TOM WHEELER and Commissioner MICHAEL O’RIELLY, the commission is once again fully constituted. As the subcommittee of jurisdiction, we’re looking forward to sitting down with the commission on DEC. 12th and having an open, wide ranging discussion that will include everything from cell phones on airplanes to FCC process reforms and the status of the incentive auctions, as we work on the 2014 telecommunications agenda. The communications and technology sector is a welcome bright spot in our economy, and we must continue working to ensure the innovation and job growth continues to flourish."
