“…to provide for greater transparency and efficiency in the procedures followed by the Federal Communications Commission.”

This was shot down in the Senate because it actually did the opposite of the original title, it granted the FCC more and wider powers, with the ability to carry out these orders behind closed doors (less transparency), typically supporting the highest briber. It would have allowed even more expansive powers to allow or prevent unfavorable (to the government) mergers (aka less efficiency).
The Democrats widely support more government intervention, and the Senate Republicans voted to a massive extreme to prevent this from happening.
