    After the net neutrality laws were repealed I don’t think the FCC needs any more money

    Again and again commissions say they need more money and our legislators just automatically approve without any oversight. We the people should be able to see where they plan on spending the money by submitting budgets and using oversights.

    Congress should withhold any funding from the FCC until they bring back Net Neutrality. Simple as that.

    This bill will just up funding for the FCC if the FCC says it needs more federal funding on the basis of getting “commitments” up and down and board of FCC officials and hoping they do not lie. I do not trust that the FCC will not abuse this legislation and constantly call for their funding to be increased. The only good thing it will do is put more money in the FCC budget for translators, which I think can be done through the private sector, considering public television is partly funded privately.

    Up until the net neutrality is re-instated a vote should not taken period.
