Wheeler Scheduled to Testify At House Hearing

Tom Wheeler
The House Communications Subcommittee will hold an FCC oversight hearing May 20 with chairman Tom Wheeler as its only witness, according to Broadcasting&Cable.

Among the issues Wheeler will be grilled on are his recently circulated draft of new network neutrality rules and the decision to limit TV joint sales agreements, as well as other media ownership issues.

Also on the table will be FCC process reforms, which member of the committee have been pushing, as has Wheeler.

“I am pleased that Chairman Wheeler will join us in May,” said Communications subcommittee chairman Greg Walden (R-Ore.). “This will be our first opportunity to directly discuss issues important to our technology economy."
