STATEMENT OF COMMISSIONER JESSICA ROSENWORCEL
ON THE CONFIRMATIONS OF TOM WHEELER AND MICHAEL O’RIELLY“I congratulate Tom Wheeler and Michael O’Rielly on their confirmations by the Senate to the Federal
Communications Commission. Tom Wheeler will bring to the Commission a long history of experience in the
communications sector that will undoubtedly contribute to his effectiveness as Chairman of the agency.
Michael O'Rielly also will bring communications policy knowledge to his new role as Commissioner.
“I look forward to working with both Tom and Mike as we tackle the communications issues facing our
country—once again as a full Commission.
“Finally, I would like to thank my colleague Mignon Clyburn for keeping the agency moving forward with
strength and grace during this interim period.”
