Background: The White House last night announced its intention to nominate Federal Communications Commission General Counsel Brendan Carr for a full five-year term as a commissioner at the agency.
This statement can be attributed to USTelecom CEO Jonathan Spalter:
“Brendan Carr is an outstanding nominee to round out a full Commission. His wealth of telecommunications experience will help the agency fully realize its mission of protecting consumers while adopting policies that encourage more broadband innovation and investment. In his time at the FCC, he has always worked with integrity, fairness, and a deep commitment to public service. USTelecom and its members look forward to working with Brendan, and we encourage the Senate to confirm him and former Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel soon.”
