The Regulatory Review for January 1 - 12, 2018

Welcome to the first Regulatory Review, a project of the FreedomWorks Foundation's Regulatory Action Center. Every two weeks, we'll bring you the best news, articles, videos, and events regarding government regulation. The Trump administration has ushered in historic reform of the accountable, unelected, and bloated federal bureaucracy. When you hear "drain the swamp" or "cut the red tape" or terms like "the 4th branch of government" or "the administrative state," those all refer to what you'll find important information on here. The Regulatory Action Center is committed to lowering the barrier between the regulatory regime and the American people, so check out the links below and be sure to check back every two weeks for the latest Regulatory Review!

FreedomWorks Foundation Announces Full Support of Finalized FCC Restoring Internet Freedom Rule

Ahead of today’s speech by Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai, FreedomWorks Foundation is pleased to announce our support of the final proposed Restoring Internet Freedom Order—ending public utility regulation of Internet service providers under Title II of the Communications Act and repealing expansive and vague standards of practice that have crippled broadband investment.

FreedomWorks Foundation Looks Forward to Supporting Final Restoring Internet Freedom Order

Today, FCC Chairman Ajit Pai circulated copies of the final Restoring Internet Freedom Order with his fellow commissioners. Tomorrow, copies will be made available to the public. This is a full three weeks prior to the vote on the proposal, an unprecedented level of transparency compared to the previous administration. The order is expected to reverse the 2015 FCC order subjecting internet service providers to vague and burdensome standards of public utility regulation under Title II of the Communications Act of 1934. The specter of Title II regulation has already killed upwards of $125 billion in broadband infrastructure deployment.
