Excerpt from a letter sent by Senator John Thune, U.S. Senate Commerce Committee Chairman, to FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler:
Leadership of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will soon change. Congressional oversight of the execution of our nation’s communications policies will continue. Any action taken by the FCC following November 8, 2016, will receive particular scrutiny. I strongly urge the FCC to avoid directing its attention and resources in the coming months to complex, partisan, or otherwise controversial items that the new Congress and new Administration will have an interest in reviewing.
