Congress / TELECOMMUNICATIONS

White House Taps New FCC Commissioners

October 31, 2011

The White House announced its intention to nominate new officials at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on Monday, tapping two longtime Washington telecom hands who had been reported as the most likely choices.

To fill a Democratic seat at the agency, to be vacated soon by Commissioner Michael Copps, the administration selected Jessica Rosenworcel, the senior communications counsel for Senate Commerce Chairman Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va. Before heading to Capitol Hill, she worked at the FCC for as a top aide for Copps and as a bureau-level staffer.

Filling the GOP seat, vacated this year by former FCC Commissioner Meredith Attwell Baker, the administration selected Agit Pai, a partner at Jenner & Block. He is also a former FCC aide, having left the agency in April after last serving as deputy general counsel.

The FCC nominations are usually paired in a bipartisan way to give senators in both parties an incentive to vote them through. The nominees are expected to get a Senate Commerce hearing.
