“Without a Democratic majority at the commission, “it’s not clear how they actually expect to get that done,” said International Center for Law & Economics Innovation Policy Director Kristian Stout. That the administration hasn’t put a permanent chair “in yet suggests that they’re having some trouble figuring out how to get the right people into those positions.” Biden’s telecom policy language is “threatening to the welfare of networks in the U.S., but I don’t see it having an immediate effect,” Stout said. “A lot of this has to go through agency processes that will really shape the outcome.”
