ATR and Digital Liberty urge President Obama to Choose Light Touch Regulators for FCC and FTC

Yesterday, Americans for Tax Reform and Digital Liberty signed on to a coalition letter to President Obama urging him to choose new FCC and FTC Commissioners who are humble enough to recognize that agency intervention is not always necessary.  

The letter urges President Obama to avoid nominating technocrats simply because they are incredibly informed on tech issues. Instead, Commissioners should be chosen who understand that their position’s first rule should be “do no harm,” and who will resist the urge to intervene when allowing market forces to operate naturally would be wiser.
