Tomorrow morning, all members of the FCC will be appearing before the House Energy and Commerce subcommittee on Communications and Technology. At The Hill, Jennifer Martinez and Brendan Sasso have a preview:
Lawmakers could explore a wide range of topics, including broadband access, the FCC’s rule requiring television stations to post political ad data online, and the commission’s review of the $3.6 billion deal between Verizon and a coalition of cable companies.
Lawmakers might ask the commissioners to weigh in on whether Congress should modernize its rules regulating the distribution of video services.
The meeting will also be the first appearance before the subcommittee for Commissioners Jessica Rosenworcel and Ajit Pai, the FCC’s two newest members.
