The U.S. Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation today approved the nomination of Tom Wheeler for Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Now that Wheeler has met the committee's approval as a nominee, he faces a vote from the full Senate. The Senate typically follows the recommendation of the committee. Wheeler was nominated by President Barack Obama earlier this year. Wheeler has already led the National Cable Television Association and the CTIA. Wheeler will succeed Julius Genachowski, who left the FCC in May, if confirmed by the full Senate. Commissioner Mignon Clyburn has acted as FCC chairperson since Genachowski's departure.
