STATEMENT OF COMMISSIONER AJIT PAI

ON COMMITTEE PASSAGE OF THE FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS

COMMISSION CONSOLIDATED REPORTING ACT

I commend the House Energy and Commerce Committee for passing the Federal
Communications Commission Consolidated Reporting Act and applaud Subcommittee Chairman
Walden, Ranking Member Eshoo and Representative Scalise for their leadership in sponsoring
this common-sense piece of legislation. The FCC's reporting requirements are numerous,
burdensome, and sometimes obsolete. Replacing these disparate obligations with a single
biennial Communications Marketplace Report will make better use of limited Commission
resources. It will also provide Congress and the public with a comprehensive and far more
useful set of data that better reflects the realities of today's converged marketplace. I hope that
this bipartisan legislation will soon be signed into law.
