FCC Chair Proposes AI Disclosure Requirements for Campaign Ads

She said written disclosures will keep the public from being misled.

Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chair Jessica Rosenworcel proposed a new rule that would require political candidates to disclose the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in campaign ads. While it is currently legal for politicians to use AI-generated video and audio in their political ads, the FCC chair maintains that a required disclosure will help consumers distinguish real quotes from fake content.

“As artificial intelligence tools become more accessible, the commission wants to make sure consumers are fully informed when the technology is used,” Chair Rosenworcel stated, adding the proposal “makes clear consumers have a right to know when AI tools are being used in the political ads they see.”

FCC commissioners will consider the proposal before voting on the rule. In February, the FCC made using AI-generated content in robocalls illegal after an AI recording that imitated President Joe Biden’s voice called New Hampshire voters in an attempt to dissuade them from voting in the upcoming primary election.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For wisdom for the commissioners of the FCC as they consider the rule to require the disclosure of AI use in campaign ads.
  • For FCC Chair Rosenworcel to be led by the Lord as she heads the commission.
