Washington, October 17, 2022 - - Federal Communications Commission Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel issued the following statement today after the Identifying Propaganda on Our Airwaves Act was introduced in the Senate and House of Representatives:

“The principle that the public has a right to know the identity of those who solicit their support is a fundamental and long-standing tenet of broadcasting,” said Chairwoman Rosenworcel. “Consumers deserve to trust that public airwaves aren’t being leased without their knowledge to foreign governments. I appreciate the leadership of Senators Schatz and Blackburn, and Representative Eshoo for their efforts to increase transparency and ensure consumers know who is behind the information transmitted over public airwaves.”
