FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski has until Friday to provide documents to members of the House Energy and Commerce Committee investigating how the agency went about adopting its Net Neutrality rules last year.

A July 28 letter from Republican committee members pointed to alleged communications on the part of the agency’s chief of staff and the staff of Commissioner Michael Copps that make it appear that the Net Neutrality Rules adopted Dec. 21, 2010, may have been politically motivated. The letter quoted a report in Communications Daily saying FCC Chief of Staff Eddie Lazarus told opponents of net neutrality rules that “if they don’t agree not to oppose such requirements under the current Title I broadband regime of the Communications Act, the commission may proceed under Title II."

The letter also referenced a recent Freedom of Information Act investigation by Judicial Watch that it said "revealed coordination between Commissioner Copps’s staff and the advocacy group Free Press, one of the leading advocates supporting the President’s campaign commitment to advance network neutrality regulations."
