Freshman Republicans Fill Out Ranks Of Senate Communications Subcommittee

Several freshman Republicans will be joining the influential Senate Communications, Technology and the Internet subcommittee, which oversees the Federal Communications Commission.

Sens. Pat Toomey, R-Pa., Marco Rubio, R-Fla., and Kelly Ayotte, R-N.H., will join Sens. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., and John Boozman, R-Ark. on the panel for the first time. Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., will also be joining the subcommittee for the Democrats.

On the other side of the Capitol, Republicans on the House Communications and Technology subcommittee have led the charge to defund the agency's efforts to implement the recently enacted net neutrality rules. And a Senate resolution of disapproval, which would overturn the rules, still awaits consideration in the Democrat-controlled chamber.
