ACTING FCC CHAIRWOMAN MIGNON L. CLYBURN CONGRATULATES TOM WHEELER

AND MICHAEL O’RIELLY ON THEIR SENATE CONFIRMATIONS

“I congratulate Tom Wheeler and Michael O’Rielly on their Senate confirmations. Tom brings a
tremendous depth of experience, talent, and knowledge that will serve him well as the leader of this
critically important agency. I have no doubt that he will be an outstanding FCC Chairman. With his
extensive public policy expertise and understanding of the communications landscape, Michael will
certainly be an invaluable asset to the Commission.
“The FCC family enthusiastically welcomes both Tom and Michael. I look forward to working with
them, along with my current colleagues at the Commission, to further communications policies that
advance the public interest, bolster competition, empower consumers, and spur new waves of innovation
that grow our economy and create jobs.”
