US Senate committee votes to approve key FCC nominee

The U.S. Senate Commerce Committee on Wednesday voted to approve President Joe Biden’s nominee for a key fifth seat on the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

Democrats have been stymied since 2021 from gaining a majority on the five-member telecommunications regulator. The committee voted to approve Anna Gomez, a Democratic telecommunications attorney, who currently serves as a senior adviser for the State Department’s Bureau of Cyberspace and Digital Policy, and new terms for two current commissioners Brendan Carr and Geoffrey Starks.
