On Feb 13, all 24 Democratic Reps on the House Commerce Committee sent a letter to the Federal Communications Commissioners over how it reviewed the docket of 24 million public comments submitted in response to the agency’s repeal of its network neutrality rules.

The Commerce Democrats, led by Ranking Member Frank Pallone Jr. (D-NJ), sent a list of 16 questions to the FCC on how it analyzed the record and determined which comments were worthy of citing in its final order. “Several members of this Committee filed comments in the docket of this proceeding, yet a number of the arguments raised in those comments were either dismissed out of hand or overlooked entirely,” reads one of the questions. “How did the Commission decide which arguments filed by members of Congress should not be considered?" The group asked the FCC to provide a response by March 6.
