“Meanwhile, Tech Knowledge Director Fred Campbell complained today about the FCC’s retaining of its ‘sunshine’ prohibitions on the set-top box item.
‘At this point it appears the public won’t receive notice and an opportunity to comment on the latest version of his set-top box rules and won’t even be allowed to discuss them at the FCC until Wheeler gets what he wants,’ Mr. Campbell said in a piece posted on the ‘Forbes’ website. “‘That’s not how an open and transparent government process is supposed to work. The ‘notice-and-comment’ and ‘sunshine’ rules governing agency procedures are supposed to facilitate greater public participation in rulemaking proceedings, not shut the public out.'”
