THE CORNER THE ONE AND ONLY. FCC Chair Refuses to Testify before Congress ahead of Net Neutrality Vote SHARE ARTICLE ON FACEBOOKSHARE TWEET ARTICLETWEET PLUS ONE ARTICLE ON GOOGLE PLUS+1 PRINT ARTICLE EMAIL ARTICLE ADJUST FONT SIZEAA by ANDREW JOHNSON February 25, 2015 10:19 AM Two prominent House committee chairs are ?deeply disappointed? in Federal Communications Commission chairman Tom Wheeler for refusing to testify before Congress as ?the future of the Internet is at stake.? Wheeler?s refusal to go before the House Oversight Committee on Wednesday comes on the eve of the FCC?s vote on new Internet regulations pertaining to net neutrality. The committee?s chairman, Representative Jason Chaffetz (R., Utah), and Energy and Commerce Committee chairman Fred Upton (R., Mich.) criticized Wheeler and the administration for lacking transparency on the issue. ?So long as the chairman continues to insist on secrecy, we will continue calling for more transparency and accountability at the commission,? Chaffetz and Upton said in a statement. ?Chairman Wheeler and the FCC are not above Congress.? The vote on the new Internet regulations is scheduled for Thursday. The FCC?s two Republican commissioners have asked Wheeler to delay the vote to allow more time for review. The changes would allow the commission to regulate the Internet like a public utility, setting new standards that require the provision of equal access to all online content.
