Senate Commerce Committee Approves Tom Wheeler as FCC Chair

Today, the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee voted to approve Tom Wheeler’s nomination to lead the Federal Communications Commission.  We congratulate Mr. Wheeler as his nomination moves forward for full Senate consideration and urge the Senate to quickly confirm him.

As wireless technology drives growth in connectivity and opens up new economic opportunity, it is critical that the FCC have the forward-looking leadership that Tom Wheeler will bring and we urge the Senate to confirm his nomination as soon as possible.
