Trump says he'll nominate Rosenworcel for a second FCC term

Trump says he'll nominate Rosenworcel for a second FCC term

Rosenworcel voted in favor of the net neutrality rules in 2015.

President Donald Trump said he plans to nominate Jessica Rosenworcel to the Federal Communications Commission, paving the way for the net neutrality supporter to return to the agency after her term lapsed late a year ago.

In recent weeks, there has been speculation that Trump would nominate Rosenworcel, in an agreement with Senate Democrats.

ROSENWORCEL was one of the three Democrats on the panel in 2012-16, but when her term expired and her nomination was not acted upon by the Senate, her nomination was withdrawn and she exited the Commission.

Tech analysts speculate that Rosenworcel could also serve as Clyburn's replacement.

This appointment rights a wrong, because she deserved confirmation a year ago, and should have been sitting on the Commission all along. Most significantly, she took the cable industry's side in the effort to end the Great Cable Box Rip-Off by noting she had "concerns" over the proposed plan.

Industry and congressional officials also expect Trump to nominate Brendan Carr, a Republican who is now general counsel at the FCC and an adviser to Pai, to an open seat.

Her term officially ended on June 30, 2016 but she had been formally approved for a second term by President Obama many months before. Her nomination is expected to be joined up with the renomination of Pei, whose five-year term ends later this year, the LA Times reports.

The Competitive Carriers Association, which represents small and rural USA carriers, quicly backed Rosenworcel's nomination.

Rosenworcel's nomination will need approval from the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee chaired by South Dakota Republican Sen. His committee eventually confirmed Rosenworcel, but never made it to the Senate floor for a chamber-wide vote. "We share Jessica's passion for promoting policies that close the digital divide and ensure that all Americans, especially students, have access to the many benefits that the internet offers".

"This appointment rights a wrong, because she deserved confirmation past year, and should have been sitting on the Commission all along", Georgetown Law lecturer Andrew Schwartzman, an attorney who specializes in media and telecommunications policy, said in a statement provided to Ars.

When the election results came in and it became clear there would be a Republican president and a Republican majority Congress, Wheeler tried to broker that deal - his scalp for her renomination - but failed.
