The House Communications Subcommittee is looking for questions to ask FCC Chairman Tom wheeler at a May 20 FCC oversight hearing with the chairman.

The committee said Thursday that it was soliciting potential questions at #AskWheeler.

"When FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler testifies...May 20, he’ll answer questions on a wide variety of communications and technology issues including the upcoming incentive auctions, the administration’s work on net neutrality rules, broadcast sharing arrangements, FCC process reform, and the committee’s work toward a #CommActUpdate," said the committee, signaling the agenda.

"But it won’t just be members of Congress asking the questions — the American public will be involved too," it said.

Questions can be submitted via Facebook and Twitter using that hashtag. The hearing will be 10:30 a.m. on May 20, and the committee is even co-opting the tactic of driving viewership with interactivity.

"Make sure to follow the hearing live on May 20 at 10:30 a.m. to see if your question gets asked," the committee said in promoting the online questions.
