Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Energy and Commerce Ranking Member Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ) today issued the following statement on the Senate’s failure to reconfirm Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC):
“Over the weekend, Senate Republicans turned their backs on consumers by failing to reconfirm FCC Commissioner Jessica Rosenworcel for a second term.  Her integrity and advocacy has helped shape the Commission’s work over the past four years,” said Pallone.  “Commissioner Rosenworcel has been a champion for hard-working Americans, including schoolchildren at risk of falling into the ‘homework gap.’  Her tireless efforts to protect consumers and lift up those in need exemplifies the type of first-rate public servant that Americans deserve.”
