FCC to study public’s information needs

{mosads}”We are in need of more detail in describing how the Commission’s actions have fulfilled those purposes, and set forth, where appropriate, specific examples and data that support the conclusions found in past FCC reports.”

Clyburn said the report demonstrates the FCC’s commitment to gathering data to create policies that support the public interest. She said the agency must know if the current communications infrastructure is adequately informing the public about imminent natural disasters or terrorist threats.

“This type of inquiry should have been a fundamental aspect of the Federal Communications Commission’s policy strategy all along,” Clyburn said.

“[T]he Commission must, at a minimum, know if the current structure of the communications industry is adequately providing Americans with the information they need to secure their health and welfare.”
