Commissioners climb the Hill.

Chairman Pai

The FCC Commissioners testified last week before the Senate Committee on Appropriations’ Subcommittee on Financial Services and General Government.. Chairman Ajit Pai, in defending his 5% cut to the Commission’s budget, said, “it is important for the commission to be fiscally responsible and avoid unnecessary spending. Moreover, I firmly believe that if the FCC refrains from regulatory overreach, we will realize additional cost savings as well as more economic growth—results that benefit everyone.”
