Last night, the White House nominated replacements for Commissioner Meredith Atwell Baker, who resigned in May, and Michael Copps, whose term has expired. The nominees are Jessica Rosenworcel and Ajit Pai. Rosenworcel formerly worked as a legal assistant to Commissioner Copps. Pai previously worked in the Office of General Counsel and several FCC Bureaus.
Both nominations must be confirmed by the Senate. There is no word yet about how quickly the Senate might consider the nominations.
