FCC Chairman: Enforcement Consent Decrees Must Get Okay from Full Commission

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai has put in place another process reform measure that he says will enable the commissioners “to become more fully involved in the agency’s enforcement activities.”

From time to time, the FCC Enforcement Bureau resolves cases by entering into a consent decree, in which the party under investigation agrees to comply with certain terms — and typically make a “voluntary contribution” to the US Treasury — in exchange for the government’s closing its inquiry.
