The FCC Moves to Unleash the Internet and Innovation
As President Barack Obama aptly stated, "Elections have consequences." President Trump’s ascendancy is reverberating throughout the federal government, perhaps no more so than at the Federal Communications Commission.
Newly-appointed Chairman Ajit Pai has taken a significant step to foster innovation and growth in one of the most-dynamic sectors in the economy. He is reversing Obama-appointed Chairman Wheeler’s creation of a sweeping new regulatory regime for all things tech. Wednesday, Pai announced the rollback of the Open Internet Order at an event hosted by FreedomWorks and the Small Business and Entrepreneurship Council.
