Rosenworcel Confirmed as FCC Chair by Senate
Tuesday, December 07, 2021 | Comments

The U.S. Senate confirmed Acting FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel to serve as the permanent chair of the commission December 7.

This term will be Rosenworcel’s third term overall on the commission and first as the permanent chair. She has been serving as the acting chair since January, when former chairman Ajit Pai resigned from the commission. President Joe Biden nominated her to the permanent position in October and on December 1, a Senate committee voted to move her nomination to the full Senate.

“It is a tremendous honor to be confirmed and designated as the first permanent Chairwoman of the Federal Communications Commission,” Rosenworcel said. “I would like to thank President Biden for the opportunity. People across the country count on the FCC to support the connections they need for work, learning, healthcare and access to the information we require to make decisions about our lives, our communities and our country. I look forward to working with the administration, my colleagues on the commission and FCC staff, members of Congress, and the public to make the promise of modern communications a reality for everyone, everywhere.”

Rosenworcel’s new term is for five years. Would you like to comment on this story? Find our comments system below.
