FCC's O'Rielly Lists 24 Commission Process Changes He'd Like To See
July 11, 2016 at 4:52 AM (PT)
FCC Commissioner MIKE O'RIELLY posted a handy chart of all of the reform suggestions he would like to see the Commission adopt in a blog post FRIDAY (7/8).
O'RIELLY, saying that his proposals were not "an attempt to undermine the authority of the Chairman or the ability of the Commission majority, whoever they may be on a particular issue, to get items completed in a timely manner," listed 24 suggestions for improving the efficiency of the Commission and increasing fairness and transparency with regard to a process that is questionable in some instances and downright objectionable in others."
Among the proposals, which O'RIELLY has raised over the course of his term at the FCC, are to post Open Meeting items at the same time as they are circulated to Commissioners with final text available to Commissioners at least 24 hours before the meeting; allowing Commissioners to discuss the substance of Commission items; mandatory sunsets for rules and 18-month limits on interim rules; posting and attribution of all edits on the official email chain for proposals; restrict post-adoption "editorial privileges" changes; and several more.
