The Senate confirmed David Redl as administrator for the National Telecommunications and Information Administration. President Donald Trump nominated Redl for the position in May.

Redl previously served as the chief counsel for the U.S. House of Representatives Communications and Technology Subcommittee, as well as serving as counsel for the House Energy and Commerce Committee. Prior to that, Redl held several positions including director of regulatory affairs at CTIA.

House Energy and Technology Committee Chairman Greg Walden and Subcommittee on Communications and Technology Chairman Marsha Blackburn congratulated Redl on his confirmation in a statement.

“Under David’s leadership as chief counsel, the Communications and Technology Subcommittee worked diligently to advance federal spectrum policy to meet America’s growing need for wireless and broadband services,” the statement said. “His experience and in-depth knowledge of communications law and policy is unmatched. Now, with David at the helm, we are confident NTIA will make great strides to ensure efficient federal spectrum use, expand broadband internet access to all, and secure Americans’ communications networks.”

FCC Chairman Ajit Pai also congratulated Redl on his confirmation.

“David is incredibly well-qualified to serve at the helm of NTIA, and I know he will further NTIA’s missions of promoting broadband deployment and ensuring that the internet remains an engine for innovation and economic growth,” Pai said. “I look forward to working with him on spectrum infrastructure and other issues.”
