The FCC is continuing its efforts “to remove outmoded regulations and reduce the regulatory burden” by scrapping Telegraph regulations.

“The FCC said in a notice it was removing “outmoded regulations” on telegraphs effective in November to “further our goals of reducing regulatory burdens, eliminating unnecessary rule provisions, and making the agency as efficient and effective as possible.”

FCC chairman Ajit Pai said the removal of  the Telegraph rule is “just a matter of good housekeeping.”  For a more in-depth discussion of the rule changes, please click the links listed at the bottom of the article.
