Today, the Senate voted to confirm Jessica Rosenworcel to serve a new five-year term as Chair of the Federal Communications Commission.
Statement of Michael Copps, Former FCC Commissioner and Common Cause Special Adviser
“It was a long and winding road for Jessica Rosenworcel, but she stayed the course and good sense has now finally prevailed with today’s Senate vote. Jessica faces a daunting agenda as chair but she has the experience and dedication to make historic progress leading the FCC. Past commission mistakes must be corrected and new trails blazed to provide our country with the communications ecosystem our democracy so clearly must have.
“Needed now is a fifth commissioner, so that a full FCC can get on with its important mandate of protecting the public interest.”
