ACA, Others, Back FCC-Limiting Small Business Bill

A large group of associations representing smaller entities has called on the bipartisan leadership of the HouseCommerce Committee to support a bipartisan bill providing them some regulatory relief at the Federal Communications Commission. They wrote the chair and ranking member of the committee to register their support for the Small Entity Regulatory Relief Opportunity (SERRO) Act (HR 3787), which is being considered as part of legislation to reauthorize the FCC now being considered by the full committee. The bill would streamline the process for seeking waivers for small entities from regulations that would disproportionately disadvantage them relative to larger players. Even more important, it actually delays applying new regulations on smaller entities for a year unless Congress or the FCC decide it is not appropriate, and would reduce the need for applying for waivers on a case-by-case basis. It would also require a triennial review of all FCC regulations for their impact on smaller entities.
