Pallone on Biden’s Nominations to the FCC and NTIA

Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ) issued the following statement today after President Biden announced several nominations to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA):

“I commend President Biden for nominating these outstanding leaders for the FCC and NTIA. With these selections, the FCC will be fully equipped to reinstate Title II oversight and net neutrality for broadband providers, continue its work to close the digital divide, and ensure broadband is affordable for all. Today’s announcement will also ensure that leadership is in place at the NTIA for the important issues that agency faces, including spectrum management and implementation of the historic broadband infrastructure investment included in the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act.

“I congratulate Jessica Rosenworcel, who is an exceptional choice to continue leading the FCC. The Acting Chair has been a consummate public servant with a deep understanding of the challenges before the Commission and a passion for solving them. Gigi Sohn is also a devoted public advocate whose career has centered around ensuring that the public interest is at the core of the FCC’s thinking. Together, and with current Commissioner Geoffrey Starks, they will make an excellent team.  

“Alan Davidson’s experience and expertise with telecommunications and technology issues will serve him well as the NTIA moves forward with critical programs passed by Congress. I look forward to working with him and the FCC leaders to ensure our communications networks serve the public interest and are affordable and accessible for all.”
