The FCC is required to report to Congress on the local impact of its policies, former FCC official Mark Lloyd tells MAIN. “Most of the information the FCC gets, it gets from the industry, or from services that the industry supports,” says Lloyd. “The reports may be right, but they may also be wrong. It is very important for local communities to gather their own information, to tell their own stories with hard data. This might help the FCC, and it might help members of Congress understand why these local issues, these issues that touch the lives of people in their district, are important.”
