The Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation approved FCC Commissioner Michael O’Rielly for a new five-year term on the FCC. O’Rielly’s nomination now moves onto the full Senate for approval.

O’Rielly was first nominated to the FCC by Barack Obama in 2013, and was then approved and sworn into office for a second term in January 2015.

“It is with deep appreciation that I thank the members of the Senate Commerce Committee, especially Chairman (Roger) Wicker for his support, along with Subcommittee Chairman (John) Thune and the other members of the committee, for considering and favorably recommending to the full Senate my nomination to serve a new term at the FCC,” O’Rielly said in a statement. “The committee takes its constitutional role in considering nominations seriously, and I am very pleased to have garnered the support of a bipartisan majority of Members.”
