  • Commissioner Clyburn announced at the FCC’s April Open Meeting that she will be stepping down from the Commission. Commissioner Clyburn began her tenure in 2009 and served as the FCC’s first Acting Chairwoman. Although her term expired June 30, 2017, the Commission’s rules allowed her to stay on through the end of 2018. Both industry and the other Commissioners thanked Commissioner Clyburn for her public service. Commissioner Rosenworcel will be the only Democrat on the Commission until a replacement is nominated and confirmed by the Senate. Commissioner Clyburn did not announce any future plans, but stated that she would step down prior to the May 10 Open Meeting.
