Costly FCC guilty of ‘regulation without representation,’ says group

A new report from the Competitive Enterprise Institute finds the Federal Communications Commission to be the third costliest agency in government. The report, released on Thursday, estimates the FCC costs Americans $142 billion per year to comply with regulations imposed by the federal agency. The FCC is tasked with regulating interstate and international communications by radio, television, wire, satellite, and cable, as well as cellular and broadband Internet provision.
