WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In response to today's hearing by the House Subcommittee on Communications and Technology on "Improving FCC Process," the following statement may be attributed to NAB President and CEO Gordon Smith:
"NAB continues to support efforts by Chairmen Upton and Walden to take a fresh look at FCC processes to ensure that Commission procedures don't impede the ability to serve the public interest. The agency has a critically important mission, and it is imperative that it execute that mission expeditiously, fairly and in a data-driven manner. We look forward to working with the Committee and the Commission to ensure that the FCC functions at the highest level for the American people."
