Rockefeller Statement on Lifting of Hold on FCC Nominees

April 27, 2012

JDR Head ShotWASHINGTON, D.C.—Chairman John D. (Jay) Rockefeller IV issued the following statement:

“I am glad that the unreasonable hold against two qualified and smart FCC nominees, Jessica Rosenworcel and Ajit Pai, has been lifted. They are each ready to do this tough job and I especially want to thank Leaders McConnell and Reid for working cooperatively to advance these nominations in the face of stubborn delay tactics. That type of bipartisan cooperation bodes well for the success of Rosenworcel and Pai and I am anxious for the full Senate to vote on their nominations in May.”
