2017 Trump-FCC Open Meeting Agendas

In 2017, the FCC Commissioners voting record shows

  • [[ FCC Republican Majority Commissioners ]] always vote as a block to favor the interests of billion-dollar telecom and media companies
  • FCC Democrat Minority Commissioner vote independently and often vote to favor the public’s interests over the interests of billion-dollar telecom and media companies
  • Note how the delay in the re-appointment of FCC Commissioner Rosenworcel by the US Senate guaranteed an [[ FCC Republican Majority Voting Block ]] for 11 of the 12 months in 2017
