Wicker: Independent FCC Caves to White House

U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, R-Miss., Chairman of the Senate Subcommittee on Communications, Technology, Innovation, and the Internet, today issued the following statement regarding the Federal Communications Commission’s (FCC) vote to regulate the Internet:

“I believe there are many people who are frankly stunned and saddened that the Chairman of an independent agency has taken an action which he once felt was ill-advised. It is also troubling that he was so quick to acquiesce to pressure from the Administration. I do believe this rule will be challenged in court, and it will be lengthy and costly.

“A Democratic member of the commission did everything she could to say, ‘Let’s slow this train down and figure out a way not to do this.’ And yet, it goes forward today with at least two Democratic-appointed members of the commission expressing serious reservations. I am disappointed that the FCC has chosen to move ahead in this manner.”
