WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Ranking Member of the House Energy & Commerce Committee welcomed “for the first time in too long” five FCC Commissioners to Capitol Hill to participate in an Oversight Hearing. That said, Rep. Frank Pallone (D-N.J.) noted in his opening remarks that the hearing wasn’t about to address a wide range of topics, which is typical of such an affair.
Indeed, Communications and Technology Subcommittee Chair Bob Latta (R-Ohio) and House E&C Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-Wash.) devoted the session to Broadband. How did Pallone react? It “is fine with me.”
