An independent government agency, overseen by five presidential appointees, that regulates all non-Federal interstate telecommunications and all international communications that originate or terminate in the United States. Although the Commissioners are appointed by the President, who also designates which one is to be the Chairman, the FCC is directly responsible to Congress. No more than three Commissioners may owe allegiance to the same political party. The Commissioners delegate much of their day-to-day operational authority to numerous administrative offices, advisory committees and councils, and bureaus. The bureaus deal most directly with telecommunications businesses. They are: the Consumer & Governmental Affairs Bureau, the Enforcement Bureau, the International Bureau, the Media Bureau, the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau and the Wireline Competition Bureau. In addition to its headquarters in Washington, DC, the FCC maintains three Regional, 16 District and nine Resident Agent offices across the United States, often collectively referred to as the "field offices."
