The Wall Street Journal: FCC nominee Ajit Pai expected to roll back regulations

Ajit Pai, a GOP member of the Federal Communications Commission tapped Monday by President Donald Trump to be the agency’s chairman, is expected to steer the agency in a deregulatory direction, in contrast to the activism of his predecessor, Democrat Tom Wheeler.

In fact, Pai, 44, has made it clear he is likely to try to roll back some of the new rules that Wheeler pushed through the five-member panel, often over the objections of big wireless and cable companies. “We need to fire up the weed whacker and remove those rules that are holding back investment, innovation and job creation,” Pai said in a December speech to a conservative think tank.
