Statement of FCC Commissioner Michael O’Rielly on the Commission’s
Critical Information Needs (CIN) StudyWashington, D.C. – Commissioner Mike O’Rielly issued the following statement today:
“House and Senate Republicans, along with Commissioner Ajit Pai, have voiced their serious
concerns about the Commission’s Critical Information Needs (CIN) study. While I was not at
the Commission when the study was authorized, I share those concerns. I appreciate the
Chairman’s willingness to make revisions, but I am afraid that tweaking it is just not enough. If
any value was ever to come from this particular exercise, that ship has sailed. It is probably time
to cancel the CIN study for good.”
