Federalist Society Teleforum Conference Call
Ajit Pai was nominated to the Federal Communications Commission by President Barack Obama and on May 7, 2012 was confirmed unanimously by the United States Senate. He will be interviewed by Gregory Sopkin of Wilkinson Barker Knauer, LLP on current hot topics before the Commission. Likely topics include incentive auctions, federal spectrum, the IP transition, process reform, and media ownership. Commissioner Pai's goal in all of these topic areas is to create a regulatory environment in which competition and innovation will flourish, and he seeks to shape regulation that gives private firms the strongest incentive to raise and invest capital; to develop new products and services; and to compete in established and new markets. Specifically, Commissioner Pai is working to remove uncertainty that can deter businesses and investors from taking risks, to revisit outdated regulations, and to set clear, modernized rules for the road. We hope you will join us for what promises to be a fascinating look into the work of a diligent regulatory reformer.
- Hon. Ajit V. Pai, Federal Communications Commission
- Moderator: Mr. Gregory E. Sopkin, Partner, Wilkinson, Barker, Knauer, LLP
Call begins at 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
