Democratic Senators clear the way for Rosenworcel.


Wyden, Markey, Rosenwercel

Ron Wyden (D-OR) and Ed Markey (D-MA) had thought that Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel was a co-conspirator to Chairman Wheeler’s clearing the agenda at the last FCC Open Meeting, and in retaliation the Senators were going to block Rosenworcel’s confirmation for her second term as commissioner; but now, according to a Wyden spokesperson, “Commissioner Rosenworcel is committed to working for the consensus of all items before the commission this year, including the Mobility Fund. . .” , so the senator “. . .lifted his hold on her nomination.” Sen. Markey took a similar position.
