WASHINGTON D.C.—The Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee has voted to approve Jessica Rosenworcel‘s nomination to another term at the Federal Communications Commission.

The vote moves the nomination to a full vote in the Senate. If approved by that vote, Rosenworcel would be the first woman to be the non-acting chair of the FCC.  

At the same hearing, the Committee also advanced Biden’s nomination for the FTC, Alvaro Bedoya, to a full Senate vote.
