STATEMENT OF

CHAIRMAN JULIUS GENACHOWSKI

Re:
Federal-State Joint Board on Universal Service, CC Docket No. 96-45, Federal-State Joint
Board on Jurisdictional Separations
, CC Docket No. 80-286, Federal-State Joint Conference on
Advanced Telecommunications Services,
CC Docket No. 99-294
I want to thank Commissioner Clyburn for over three years of outstanding service as federal chair
of the Joint Boards on Universal Service and Jurisdictional Separations and the Joint Conference on
Advanced Services. Since arriving at the FCC, Commissioner Clyburn's experience on the state Public
Service Commission in South Carolina has proven invaluable in our collective work, and her background
made her ideally suited to Chair the Joint Boards and the Joint Conference.
I look forward to the work of Commissioners Rosenworcel and Pai on the Joint Boards and Joint
Conference, and I commend Commissioner Rosenworcel for stepping up to serve as federal chair.
Commissioner Rosenworcel's got a tough act to follow, but I know she's up to the challenge.

STATEMENT OF

COMMISSIONER MIGNON CLYBURN

Re:
Federal-State Joint Board on Universal Service, CC Docket No. 96-45, Federal-State Joint
Board on Jurisdictional Separations
, CC Docket No. 80-286, Federal-State Joint Conference on
Advanced Telecommunications Services,
CC Docket No. 99-294
I am pleased to welcome Commissioners Rosenworcel and Pai to the Universal Service Joint
Board and Separations Joint Board, and I wish Commissioner Rosenworcel the best as federal chair of the
Universal Service Joint Board, the Separations Joint Board, and the Joint Conference. My time in that
capacity was a labor of love, and I look forward to continued service with those individuals who work
tirelessly to keep our federal and state collaboration running smoothly.
I would also like to pay tribute to Angie Kronenberg, my legal advisor who oversaw all of my
interaction with the Joint Boards. Angie's great counsel and mastery of the issues combined with
countless memos, long nights, and lots of travel, were of tremendous benefit to the FCC and our state
allies, and I cannot thank her enough for her contributions.
