Obama Renominates Clyburn to FCC

June 6, 2012

President Obama announced on Wednesday that he is renominating Mignon Clyburn to a second term as a member of the Federal Communications Commission.

Clyburn's term is up at the end of June. The nomination must be approved by the Senate, which has often used FCC nominations as pawns in disputes over unrelated issues. Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, held up the nominations of Republican Ajit Pai and Democrat Jessica Rosenworcel, who were widely supported, for months in protest over the FCC's handling of the LightSquared controversy. The pair were finally approved on a unanimous Senate vote last month.

"In renominating Commissioner Clyburn, President Obama has made an outstanding choice for the Commission and for the American people," FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski said in a statement. "As I know from working with her for the past several years, Commissioner Clyburn is a strong leader, focused on helping all Americans harness the benefits of broadband."
