FCC Halts Effort on Social Media Regulation

Chairman determines more time is needed for revision.

As inauguration day approaches, current administration leaders are wrapping up various efforts in anticipation of the next administration. Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai has decided to halt the effort to reform Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act of 1996.

In its current state, Section 230 gives social media giants such as Facebook and Twitter immunity from lawsuits made against them with regards to the removal of various users’ posts. In an interview, Chairman Pai said that “within Congress there seems also to be a consensus that it should be revised,” though it will not be in his term.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That Chairman Ajit Pai is effective in completing the duties of his office.
  • For Congress as they continue to consider what laws are pertinent to social media.
  • That God would give President Trump wisdom in the coming week.
