(Washington, D.C.) – Today, Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) President Tom Schatz released a statement following the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) announcement that it will be considering the Restoring Internet Freedom rulemaking at its December meeting:

“We are pleased that the FCC is taking this critical step to remove the antiquated, depression-era regulations over the internet that were imposed in February 2015 under former FCC chairman Tom Wheeler.  The transparency in this proceeding is a welcome change from previous FCC processes, and we look forward to reviewing the final order prior to the vote at the FCC.  Restoring freedom to the internet would constitute a landmark achievement for consumers and taxpayers alike.”

Citizens Against Government Waste is the nation's largest nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to eliminating waste, fraud, abuse, and mismanagement in government.
