Arlington, VA (October 26, 2021) – The Telecommunications Industry Association—the trusted industry association for the connected world—today released a statement about President Joe Biden’s leadership nominations for Jessica Rosenworcel as Chairwoman of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), Alan Davidson as Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Communications and Information, and Gigi Sohn as an FCC commissioner.


TIA CEO David Stehlin released the following statement:

“TIA congratulates Acting Chairwoman Rosenworcel on her historic nomination. As a Commissioner, Rosenworcel has been a staunch supporter of ensuring all Americans have access to high-quality broadband. She has the skills and experience America needs as Congress considers bold investments in ICT infrastructure. We urge the Senate to quickly confirm her as Chairwoman of the FCC.

TIA looks forward to working with Mr. Davidson as the head of the National Telecommunications and Information Administration. With his experience in both the private sector and government, we believe Mr. Davidson will bring a valuable perspective at a critical time for the ICT industry. We look forward to working with NTIA on important issues for our members, including standards development, supply chain security, access to broadband, and spectrum management.

TIA also congratulates Ms. Sohn on her nomination as an FCC Commissioner. Ms. Sohn has decades of experience as a tireless consumer advocate, and we look forward to working with her and partnering with the Commission to solve challenges together.

We welcome this group of crucial nominations that are important to the ICT sector. It’s a pivotal time for our industry, and we must work together to ensure a safe and secure path forward for ensuring trust in our nation’s digital infrastructure.”
