The Communications Act of 1934 created the Federal Communications Commission and outlined a comprehensive regulatory structure for overseeing spectrum-based and wire-based communications. The 80th anniversary of the passage of this important law provides an opportunity to reflect on the original intentions of the act and how it has been implemented.

 

On October 22, Governance Studies at Brookings hosted an event exploring the history, implementation and multiple legislative revisions to date of the Communications Act of 1934. A panel of experts discussed the FCC’s relationship with Congress, the executive branch and other regulatory agencies, along with the possible need to update the Act to reflect current and future digital economy developments, technology innovation, consumer preferences and other contemporary issues.
