Remarks of FCC Commissioner Michael O'Rielly Before the Free State Foundation's Tenth Anniversary Luncheon
I’m excited and honored to play a part in the new Federal Communications Commission, and to the extent it is helpful, I am humbly going to outline some very broad areas where the next Commission could potentially focus some of its efforts.
1. Undo Harmful Policies: Foremost in many minds is the need simply to undo the more harmful policies adopted by the current Commission.
2. Clear Regulatory Underbrush: Another priority worth attention is clearing away the existing regulatory underbrush that is choking businesses and diveverting resources away from new and improved products, better service, and lower prices for consumers.
3. Develop and Execute a Strong Pro-Growth, Pro-Innovation Agenda: The new Commission should have ample opportunity to showcase its creativity and foresight by developing and executing a strong pro-growth, pro-innovation agenda firmly grounded in free market principles
4. Process Reform and Organization: Last but not least, I hope the next Commission will take this opportunity to make substantial progress toward improving the efficiency of the Commission and increasing fairness and transparency in its processes.
