Congress – from 1/25/19 Friday Report

The FCC’s Accelerating Wireless Broadband Deployment by Removing Barriers to Infrastructure Investment Order was at the heart of correspondence shipped to the Commission by Pennsylvania Congressman Mike Doyle yesterday. New Jersey Congressman Frank Pallone was a co-signer of the letter which asked Chairman Ajit Pai to investigate whether any Commission personnel had urged any party to appeal the Order and threatened retribution against those who were not helpful. The timeline for a Commission response is three weeks after the federal government shutdown ends.
