Republicans are sure that Trump will implement changes for the Federal Communication Commission (FCC). The Trump administration declines the idea of net neutrality. The FCC transition team of Trump, Republicans from the agency but also Republicans in Congress made clear the idea that they intend to tear down the idea which implied that internet providers represent public utilities.
Apparently, changes will be made after taking into consideration partisan votes to FCC itself, going beyond dissentious regulations. Commissioner Ajit Pai, one of the Republicans at FCC has declared on December 7th for Free State Foundation that now will be the perfect time to transform FCC into a transparent and opened agency.
Pai explained that they would switch from releasing the necessary documents they vote on during a public meeting to determine an FCC Dashboard with outstanding outcomes, to enabling the public to be aware of how and what they are doing. He also argued that it is time for a change in the FCC culture under Chairman Tom Wheeler.
Wheeler, who is a Democrat, intentionally left Republican superintendents without a clue when employing in significant proposals and passed more regulations along partisan lines compared to any other chairman who conducted FCC in the last twenty years.
Pai asserted that Chairman Tom Wheeler might have the chance to steer the necessary changes himself. Jeffery Eisenach, the adviser of Trump’s FCC transition team, stated on December 8th that most likely Pai or Michael O’Rielly, another Republican Commissioner, will occupy the chairman position. Pai argued that the new chairmanship will dare to apply a conservative discharge of the restrictive landscape.
Pai claimed that he is trustful when stating that the election campaign from last month will mark the event as an upward point. He also predicts that Trump administration will bring a shift switching from playing defense to going on offense at the Federal Communication Commission. The new government will take care of annihilating the regulations which are restraining innovation, job creation, and investment.
Eisenach agreed with Pai, asserting that an deregulatory agenda like the one under the Reagan administration can occur again. He also argued there is a market which stands for the power of the state, regarding the win edge providers surpassing internet providers by using net neutrality.
