Republicans Close to FCC Picks

Jun 2, 2009  •  Post A Comment


Senate Republicans are drawing close to an agreement on two picks for FCC commissioner, Broadcasting & Cable reports, citing sources familiar with the process.

The choices are likely to be Meredith Atwell Baker, former acting head of the National Telecommunications & Information Administration, and a renomination for FCC Commissioner Robert McDowell, the trade paper says.

The picks wouldn’t be final until a confirmation hearing in the Senate Commerce Committee and a vote in the full Senate, the publication says.
