WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to the FCC’s approval of a proposal affecting the Commission’s operation of its field offices, the following statement can be attributed to NAB Executive Vice President of Communications Dennis Wharton:

“NAB appreciates the work of both the FCC and Congress in forging a compromise FCC field office proposal that keeps open many more enforcement offices than was originally proposed. We also thank both Republican and Democratic commissioners for expressing a need to better enforce prohibition against pirate radio stations.
