Statement of NCTA President & CEO Michael Powell Regarding Senate FCC Confirmations
“We congratulate Tom Wheeler and Mike O’Rielly on their confirmations to serve on the Federal Communications Commission and look forward to working with them in their new positions. Both individuals bring an abundance of experience and deep knowledge of media, technology and telecommunications that will serve them well as the Commission considers important policy issues. With the Commission soon to be at full strength, we would also be remiss not to compliment Acting Chairwoman Mignon Clyburn for her steady hands and for the significant contributions made by the FCC under her watch. We look forward to working with all Commissioners as we begin a new chapter with a new Chairman."
