FCC chair a frequent White House visitor

Federal Communications Chairman Julius Genachowski was a frequent visitor to the White House this year, making nearly four dozen trips there between Jan. 26 and Sept. 1, according to a White House release of its visitor log.

Genachowski, who served as President Obama's technology adviser during the election campaign and transition, was named FCC chairman in March. After Senate confirmation, he officially took over the FCC at the end of June.

The data released today are for the first nine months of the year. In September, he announced his controversial plan to create stronger and broader open-Internet rules. The proposal would prevent Internet service providers from blocking or prioritizing content on the Web.
