Committee opens purse for FCC

The Senate appropriations committee on has agreed to fund the Federal Communications Commission’s 1996 budget at $166 million, some $18 million more than the $148 million agreed to earlier by an appropriations subcommittee.

If ultimately approved, the committee’s Sept. 12 action would result in slightly more than a 10% funding cut from this year’s FCC budget of $185.2 million.

FCC chairman Reed Hundt said he is “gratified” by the partial funding restoration, but that he hopes he will be given “the full level of resources necessary to carry out the duties Congress requires of us.”
