The FCC’s Mission
The Federal Communications Commission regulates interstate and international communications by radio, television, wire, satellite, and cable in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and U.S. territories. An independent U.S. government agency overseen by Congress, the Commission is the federal agency responsible for implementing and enforcing America’s communications law and regulations.
How It Works
In 1972, Congress passed the Federal Advisory Committee Act to ensure that advice by advisory committees is objective and accessible to the public.
