Senate Panel to Consider FCC Nominees

November 18, 2011

Senate Commerce Committee Chairman Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va., said Friday that his panel will have a hearing Nov. 30 to consider the nominations of Jessica Rosenworcel and Ajit Varadaraj Pai to the Federal Communications Commission.

"These are exceptional nominees who will be effective advocates at the FCC," Rockefeller said in a statement. "As we consider these nominations, I remain committed to working with my colleagues to address any concerns and move these nominations to a full Senate confirmation as expeditiously as possible."

Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, has said he planned to put a hold on the confirmations until the FCC gives him documents about communications with the wireless start-up LightSquared.

Rockefeller had said he wanted to move forward as quickly as possible.

Rosenworcel would fill a vacancy left by departing commissioner Michael Copps, who plans to leave by the end of the year. Pai would move into a position vacated by GOP commissioner Meredith Attwell Baker, who left the commission earlier this year to work for Comcast.
