‘Chairman Pai Is Just The Kind Of Person We Need Over At The FCC’
‘As I noted last week, the nominee before us — FCC Chairman Ajit Pai — has led a fascinating life with two defining features: hard work and success.’
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) released the following remarks today regarding the nominee for Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, Ajit Pai:
“As I noted last week, the nominee before us — FCC Chairman Ajit Pai — has led a fascinating life with two defining features: hard work and success.
“He understands communications policy from just about every angle — no wonder, given his deep and impressive resume. He comprehends the needs of rural communities in states like mine — a product of his own rural upbringing.
“And he has dedicated himself to issues like advocating for Americans’ First Amendment rights and bringing more openness and more accountability to the FCC — an agency that, too often, has earned a reputation for secrecy.
“Chairman Pai is just the kind of person we need over at the FCC. I was glad to see the Senate advance his nomination last week. I look forward to confirming him to a new term later this afternoon.”
