The following statement is attributed to Gigi B. Sohn, president
and co-founder of Public Knowledge:
“We are very pleased that the Senate Commerce Committee acted so
quickly to approve the nominations of Julius Genachowski to be
the chairman of the Federal Communications Commission and Robert
McDowell to serve another term as commissioner.
“We look forward to the full Senate confirming the nominees
quickly. The issues awaiting Commission action are too important
to be delayed any longer.”
