  • The U.S. Senate confirmed the nominations of Former FCC Commissioner Rosenworcel and FCC General Counsel Brendan Carr last week. Commissioner Rosenworcel was reappointed while Brendan Carr was appointed to complete a term for an open Commissioner seat and for a new term beginning July 1, 2018. Though Chairman Pai’s nomination for another term was approved by the Senate Commerce Committee, the full Senate has not yet acted on the nomination. In other confirmation news, the nomination of David Redl to head up NTIA has been held over due to Senator Ted Cruz’s (R-TX) concerns with the ICANN transition.
