Rep. Robert Latta (R-Ohio) has introduced a bill that would
require the FCC to conduct a cost-benefit analysis of proposed rules.
It mirrors one of the proposals in a draft bill
circulated this week by Rep. Greg Walden (R-Ore.), chair of the House
Communications Subcommittee of which Latta is also a member.
"Over-regulations are stifling small businesses' ability
to innovate and create jobs in the United States," Latta said of the
Analysis of Benefits and Costs (or ABC's ) bill. "With the
telecommunications industry driving a significant proportion of the economic
growth in our country, we should make sure the FCC does not produce regulations
that will hamper this sector of the economy."
