And Still No FCC Chair
The Senate hearing to review President Obama's pick for Federal Communications Commission chair Julius Genachowski has been postponed until after Memorial Day, the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation committee said today.
Industry insiders with knowledge of lawmakers' thinking said Republicans are expected to put forth Meredith Atwell Baker, former acting head of the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, as their pick for the empty Republican spot vacated by former chairman Kevin Martin. Senate leaders are said to want to conduct confirmation hearings of Genachowski, Democratic nominee Mignon Clyburn and Baker together.
Genachowski is expected to win approval without major opposition.
