If you happen to peruse Joe Biden’s campaign website, you will find a laundry list of “Biden Plans” for everything from ending racism to reintroducing the failed Cash for Clunkers program for electric vehicles. Among these patently ridiculous proposals sits a seemingly innocuous promise to “establish a technology-neutral Energy Efficiency and Clean Electricity Standard (EECES) for utilities and grid operators.” But behind its sweet sounding title, creating a national EECES could prove to be a disaster for the energy sector.
The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has finalized its remand order regarding the Restoring Internet Freedom Order (RIFO). This remand order clarified the FCC’s authority in a few areas pursuant to the D.C. Circuit Court’s decision in the Mozilla v. FCC case. This final order will continue the successful light touch regulatory framework, continue increased broadband investment, and hopefully put this contentious issue to rest for the time being.
WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In response to the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) clarification of its authority in its 2018 Restoring Internet Freedom Order, Dan Savickas, FreedomWorks’ Regulatory Policy Manager, commented:
You may have heard the oft-repeated narrative that concerns over voting by mail are baseless. This is a dangerous narrative that puts Americans’ votes at risk and undermines public confidence in how we conduct elections.
With just two weeks until the November election, an alarming number of reports have surfaced confirming voters’ worst fears about widespread voting by mail. Potential difficulties associated with a major increase in mail ballots have also been documented by those on both sides of the aisle in the past and should be a subject of bipartisan concern. Sadly, Democrats and their allies in the media continue to wage a disinformation campaign suppressing any reports of issues related to widespread voting by mail.
