The White House has said it intends to nominate telephony attorney Robert McDowell to be an FCC commissioner. Agency Chairman Kevin Martin applauded the action and said if confirmed, McDowell would be a great asset.
McDowell is senior vice president and assistant general counsel with CompTel, which represents many Bell competitors, including Internet phone providers.
"He has a wealth of knowledge in the communications arena, and we will rely on his insight when evaluating the issues before us."
If confirmed by the Senate, The Republican would bring the agency back to its full complement of five commissioners.
