STATEMENT FROM FCC CHAIRMAN JULIUS GENACHOWSKI ON SENATOR

ROCKEFELLER RETIREMENT ANNOUNCEMENT

Washington, D.C. – The following statement is attributable to FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski:
“During his 30 years in the Senate, Chairman Rockefeller has been a strong leader for the people of West
Virginia and all consumers, ensuring that schoolchildren everywhere have access to the Internet through
the E-Rate program and establishing the nationwide public safety communications network called for by
the 9/11 Commission. Chairman Rockefeller’s fierce advocacy for consumers and unwavering
commitment to advancing the public interest have improved the lives of countless Americans. I look
forward to continuing to work with him as he completes his term.”
