In the early 2000s, a state-run corporation called the Federal Communications Commission was the only entity in the United States that had the power to regulate the transmission of television signals.
The FCC, which had its origins in the Telecommunications Act of 1996, is a bureaucratic body that has long been the go-to source for state and federal governments to pass laws to keep up with technology.
But as the internet and mobile phones became more widely adopted, and as Congress tried to make sure all of its agencies had the resources to keep pace with the new world, the FCC decided that the only way it could do that was by becoming a single entity.
This decision would create the FCC as we know it today.
The agency’s power was limited to regulating certain kinds of television transmission, but it was able to do so without much regulation.
The Communications Act of 1934 established the FCC, and the FCC has remained the federal agency tasked with ensuring the transmission and use of radio waves, among other things.
Since its creation in 1934, the agency has grown from a relatively small agency to the largest telecommunications authority in the country.
It’s now the second-largest in the nation after the Federal Trade Commission, with more than 1.3 million employees.
As its regulatory authority expands, it has also become the source of controversy.
Since 2009, when Congress gave the FCC new authority to regulate television signals, it’s been embroiled in two lawsuits over its actions.
In 2015, a federal judge struck down parts of the agency’s rules, including the so-called “net neutrality” rules.
In 2016, the same judge found that the agency had violated federal law by allowing Comcast to charge more money for its cable television service.
And last month, the Supreme Court agreed to hear arguments on the agency vs. AT&T case, which pits the Federal Communication Commission against AT&am.
The issue of net neutrality is one of the more pressing issues facing the FCC right now.
In addition to the lawsuit, the company wants to force the FCC to take up a proposed merger between AT&t and Time Warner Cable, which could lead to a loss of control of the internet.
As a result, the Commission has been grappling with how to keep the internet open while also keeping pace with technology changes.
One way the FCC is trying to keep track of the changing landscape is by making its rules more uniform across the country, and it’s doing just that.
The Federal Communications Act is supposed to give the FCC the power and authority to set rules for “all forms of telecommunication, including radio waves,” as it defines them.
But since the FCC was created in 1934 it has limited its authority to the regulation of specific kinds of radio signals, which it has given to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) under the Communications Act.
FEMA has the power over emergency and disaster management, and its rules are the law of the land.
The Feds, however, have limited the agency to overseeing certain kinds and types of telecommunications in certain places.
And since the 1970s, the Feds have relied on its authority over television signals to regulate how it works with the Internet.
The rulemaking process for the FCC’s rules is governed by the Federal Telecommunications Act, which was passed in 1934 by Congress.
The Act has three sections.
Section 1 is the authority to make rules “for the purpose of regulating the ownership, control, operation, or distribution of telephones or television services.”
Section 2 is the Section that governs “the rights of the United Nations.”
Section 3 is the “general purpose.”
In the case of television transmissions, Section 3 covers the FCC rulemaking procedure, which requires the FCC and the FED to get approval from the FEP before it can issue any rules.
The rules must also pass muster with the FERC, which is an independent regulatory body created by Congress after the Telecommunications Acts of 1934 and 1950 were repealed.
FERC rules must be in writing and not be subject to judicial review.
The agencies also have to adhere to specific procedures to ensure that rules are consistent with the law and that they do not interfere with the operation of telecommunications services.
This means that the FCC rules need to be consistent with FCC regulations governing the radio transmission of signals from cable TV to mobile phone networks, for example.
The other two sections of the FCC Act deal with “communications, telecommunication services, and equipment” (which is a broader category than radio).
The FCC rules do not apply to wireless or satellite communications, but the FCC does regulate those, too.
The first section of the rules deals with “communication, telecommunications services, or equipment” — which covers everything from the use of cellphones by customers to the operation and maintenance of a wireless network.
Section 2 covers “communications,” which includes wireless communications.
Section 3 deals with communications and equipment, which covers the operation,
