Public Broadcasters Encourage FCC Chairman Pai's Regulatory Weed-Whacking

Public broadcasters are supporting Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai's weed-whacking of some of what they see as outmoded regulations, including having to provide the FCC with lists of programs or issues and having to run educational/informational (E/I) on-screen bugs. In meetings at the FCC, executives of PBS, CBP, NPR and America's Public Television Stations "expressed appreciation for the Commission’s efforts to date to eliminate or modify regulations that are outdated, unnecessary, or unduly burdensome." The groups say lifting some regulatory requirements will help them better redirect their limited resources to "the highest and best use."
