STATEMENT OF COMMISSIONER AJIT PAI

ON PRESIDENT OBAMA’S INTENT TO NOMINATE

TOM WHEELER TO BE THE CHAIRMAN OF THE FCC

I congratulate Tom Wheeler on the announcement that President Obama intends to
nominate him to be the Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission. Given his
wealth of private-sector experience and his knowledge of the communications industry, Tom is
superbly qualified to lead the Commission. I look forward to working with him on creating a
regulatory environment in which innovation and competition will flourish for the benefit of all
Americans.
