Washington, DC - Dec 11, 2001 - Commissioner Kathleen Q. Abernathy relaunched her Commission website with several new features to make information and her office more accessible. One item of note is the News You Can Use page. Commissioner Abernathy describes the Web page as a feature that will focus focus on one public interest issue to raise awareness outside the Beltway and highlight the Commission's role and her own views on the issue. She will also incorporate the effort into her speeches. The first issue she covered was slamming.

The Commissioner's redesigned website now allows for a web-based meeting request form through which interested parties may request meetings with the Commissioner and her staff. The website also features a new personalized links section, a photo gallery, and an intern page. The Commissioner plans for the website to continue to evolve and improve over time.
