Ajit Pai will serve as the FCC's Chairman for another five-year term after the U.S. Senate voted to extend his leadership with the agency. Some senators sought to unseat Pai, calling his tenure a threat to the open internet. Since Pai took the reigns at the FCC in January, he's focused on undoing much of what previous Chairman, Tom Wheeler, put into place, including net neutrality regulations. Despite the opposition to Pai, the Republican-majority Senate voted him in. "I am deeply grateful to the U.S. Senate for confirming my nomination to serve a second term at the FCC. I look forward to continuing to work with my colleagues to advance these critical priorities in the time to come."
