The full FCC is set to appear before the Senate Commerce Committee today, Broadcasting & Cable’s John Eggerton has a preview of what newly appointed Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel will say during the appearance:
According to a copy of those remarks, she will give a shout out to incentive auctions and the FCC’s history of delivering the goods—raising $50 billion for the treasury. She will also express confidecence that with the “right mix of engineering and economics,” the incentive auctions can follow in that tradition and, so long as the FCC follows the law, be “fair to all stakeholders.”
That law includes the requirement that broadcasters not be forced to participate.
The hearing begins at 2:30 pm EST, and will be streamed on CSPAN.
