AS THE ACTING CHAIRWOMAN OF THE FCCCongratulations to my friend and colleague, Mignon Clyburn, on her designation this morning as
Chairwoman of the Federal Communications Commission. This is a historic day—as the 30th chair, she is
the first woman to lead our 79-year-old agency. I know that her steadfast leadership and commitment to
