STATEMENT OF FCC COMMISSIONER AJIT PAI

ON HOUSE PASSAGE OF THE FCC PROCESS REFORM ACT OF 2013

I applaud the U.S. House of Representatives for passing the Federal Communications
Commission Process Reform Act of 2013, H.R. 3675, and I commend the leaders of the Energy and
Commerce Committee’s Subcommittee on Communications and Technology—Chairman Walden and
Ranking Member Eshoo—for their bipartisan efforts to advance this legislation.
I hope that this common-sense bill, as well as the Federal Communications Commission
Consolidated Reporting Act of 2013, H.R. 2844, which the House of Representatives passed 415 to 0
back in September, will soon be enacted into law. Together, these bills recognize the need to modernize
the FCC to reflect our dynamic, converged communications marketplace. And they would eliminate
outdated mandates on the agency, streamline its operations, and make it more accountable to the public.
These are two pieces of straightforward, good-government legislation, and I hope that the President will
soon have the opportunity to sign them.
