Senate confirms Jessica Rosenworcel as first permanent female Chair of FCC

The US Senate confirmed acting Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chair Jessica Rosenworcel as the first female to fill the role on a permanent basis. Rosenworcel served as an FCC Commissioner between 2012 and January 2021, when she was chosen by then recently inaugurated President Joe Biden to fulfill the role on an interim basis. The Democrat replaced controversial Republican Chair Ajit Pai. The departing head of the agency's term in office was defined by his successful but extremely unpopular effort to repeal US federal net neutrality protections, as well as accusations that he was negligent in fulfilling the FCC's duty to proliferate broadband across the US.

Senate Confirms FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel To Another Term

The Senate confirmed FCC chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel to serve another term, but it is still unclear when Democrats will be able to get a majority on the commission. Rosenworcel’s confirmation, in a 68-31 vote on Tuesday, will still leave the commission with a 2-2 split. President Joe Biden’s nominee to fill a vacancy on the five member commission, public interest advocate Gigi Sohn, faces significant Republican opposition, in part because of past tweets, including one about Fox News. Some GOP members have threatened to put a hold on her nomination, something can drag out the process toward confirmation. If Sohn is confirmed,...
