FCC Chairman (nominated) Julius Genachowski goin’ to confirmation
Posted May 7, 2009on:
Mr. G, Julius Genachowski, is finally getting a hearing next week on Capitol Hill. The nominee for Federal Communications Commission (FCC) chairman will go before the Senate Commerce Committee on May 12.
Genachowski hasn’t had a smooth ride so far. First, there was a delay in announcing him for the position — most likely due to the cabinet-level nominees before him not paying their taxes correctly — and then his nomination been logjammed by pissed-off Republicans fretting about something or another… couple of weeks ago there was rumor floating around around that they would hold up the hearing until August…
ANYWAY, this all seems to be behind us now and Genachowski will get the chance to answer questions on May 12.
