Key parts of the OBAMA administration's technology agenda are "stalled at the FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION, but its chairman said MONDAY (9/27) that he's impatient to move them forward soon," reports THE WALL STREET JOURNAL. "JULIUS GENACHOWSKI took over the FCC 15 months ago with an ambitious to-do list, including a plan to improve U.S. broadband service and a promise that he would prevent phone and cable companies from interfering with Internet traffic."
Now, GENACHOWSKI, in response to critics said "I'm impatient, too. This is an important area that touches a lot, and it's important for our economy. There's a lot to do. There's a lot we've gotten done, but there's a lot to do."
GENACHOWSKI has recently delayed action on a net neutrality proposal until after the NOVEMBER elections, saying both sides need more time to comment on a few issues.
Additionally, the FCC won't complete a congressionally mandated review of media ownership rules this year.
