FCC Nominations Expected Soon

FCC Nominations Expected Soon

President George W. Bush was expected to make two nominations to fill the Republican slots at the FCC. The timing of the nomination was expected to be soon, according to Reuters, which reported the likely nominees as Richard Russell, a White House technology advisor and Deborah Tate, a director on the Tennessee Regulatory Authority.
Earlier in the week, the name of another White House aide, Michael Meece, was floated as a candidate.
The White House wasn’t commenting on the reports Friday.
The Senate would need to confirm the appointments that would fill a seat left open by the departure of former Chairman Michael Powell and Kathleen Abernathy. Her term expired a year ago and she agreed to remain until new commissioners were appointed.
