Rep. Darrell Issa Seeks Feedback On Eliminating Regulations
January 6, 2011 at 7:02 AM (PT)
NAB EVP DENNIS WHARTON confirms to ALL ACCESS that the incoming chair of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Rep. DARRELL ISSA (R-CA), sent the organization a letter seeking feedback on what regulations they might like to see eliminated.
"We did get a letter from Rep. ISSA, which he sent to a number of trade associations asking for suggestions on eliminating wasteful regulations, and NAB will be responding," said WHARTON.
BROADCASTINGCABLE.COM reports, "Among the regulations in House Republicans' sites is the FCC's newly-minted network neutrality rules, though they will not take effect for a couple more months at least. They must first be published in the Federal Register -- which could trigger Republican congressional action -- but would still not take effect until 60 days after the Office of Management and Budgets signals -- also in the Register -- that the rules do not create unnecessary paperwork."
CNN reports ISSA confirmed he had contacted trade groups and others.
