Statement of FCC Chairman William E. Kennard
on Biennial Review Process

The Commission's first biennial review has been a collaborative process that is leading to concrete results. I want to thank Commissioner Furchtgott-Roth for his report. The suggestions offered in it are very constructive, and I am sure they will assist the Commission as it begins planning its 2000 biennial review. I look forward to continuing to work closely with him and all the Commissioners on streamlining the FCC so it operates in a common-sense manner and avoids unnecessary regulation.
