Senate Committee to Vote on Sohn Nomination

Posted on February 28th, 2022 by

On March 2, the U.S. Senate Commerce Committee will vote on the nomination of Gigi Sohn to become an FCC Commissioner.  If approved by the Committee, her nomination will head to the full Senate for a vote there.  Sohn has agreed to recuse herself from certain broadcast copyright matters if approved for a stint at the FCC.  Until a 3rd Democratically appointed FCC Commissioner is appointed, more controversial matters requiring a 3-2 majority vote, such as net neutrality and possible new EEO reporting obligations, cannot move forward.
