New FCC Chairman Ajit Pai Offers Praise for H.R. 555, Other Telecoms Bills

Newly designated FCC Chairman Ajit Pai praised the House action on H.R. 555 and other telecommunications-related legislation that cleared the chamber on Monday.

“I want to commend the U.S. House of Representatives for passing a number of important, bipartisan telecom bills yesterday,” Pai said on January 24.

“These bills will help bring greater efficiency to the Commission, provide consumers with greater protections, improve rural call completion, help Amateur Radio operators, and take several steps to promote public safety,” he continued, adding, “I look forward to working with Congress on these and other important issues as Chairman of the FCC.”
