Other sessions TUESDAY morning looked at AM revitalization issues under the new rules, plans for the next Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS) EAS test, and a reprise of regulatory talk with O'RIELLY and former Commissioners HAROLD FURCHTGOTT-ROTH and ROBERT MCDOWELL.
The chairman will sketch out his plans at an event in Washington, D.C., on Wednesday hosted by the conservative-leaning group FreedomWorks.
Advocacy group Free Press Chief Executive Craig Aaron said Monday Pai wants to hand over control of the internet to providers "no matter the cost to our economy and democracy". Our companies should be able to compete with incumbents on the quality of our products and services, not our capacity to pay tolls to Internet access providers. And given that net neutrality has broad, bipartisan support among consumers, Pai has an uphill battle against what will likely be severe activist backlash. Instead, Internet service providers would take a voluntary pledge not to discriminate online and the Federal Trade Commission would investigate any alleged violations of the pledges.
"The rigid rules that now govern Internet providers forbid an array of business models that could benefit consumers", Ryan Radia, a research fellow at the pro-business Competitive Enterprise Institute, said in a statement. It propagates and promotes that FCC should police the broadband provider actions using the utility-style regulation.

Citing four sources close to Pai, Recode reported that the process to overturn the rules will start tomorrow. Such a strategy could put pressure on Congress to negotiate a legislative compromise more quickly.
At least one big supporter of net neutrality - Netflix - has tempered its rhetoric recently. Many of them don't match current market conditions, he added.
At an FCC meeting last week, Pai said that he thinks "everybody needs to recognize that there is common ground here, and there is room for an agreement here". And he has floated the idea privately to various companies and groups that could be affected by that change in policy.
Last week, he met with Silicon Valley companies such as Apple and Facebook, and he met with telecom providers earlier this month. "Previous year the United States experienced the first decline in broadband investment outside of a recession", Pai said in a speech at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February, as cited by Tech Crunch.
