Genachowski: I Never Discussed Internet Rules With Obama

May 5, 2011

Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski said Thursday he never collaborated with President Obama in developing and passing regulations to prevent anticompetitive behavior online.

At a hearing of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Intellectual Property, Competition, and the Internet Subcommittee Thursday morning, Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., continued his probe into how much interaction went on between the White House and the FCC as the agency created net neutrality rules.

Genachowski said he "never discussed" net neutrality with Obama, and the chairman denied that he pursued the rules because Obama made it a campaign issue.

Issa has repeatedly sent letters to the FCC, demanding information about meetings between White House and FCC staffers. He argues that such collaboration could have violated disclosure rules.
