WASHINGTON — The Communications Infrastructure Contractors Association congratulated acting Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel on her designation to serve as chairwoman of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). 

NATE congratulates Chairwoman Rosenworcel on being designated as the first woman to serve as the chair of the Federal Communications Commission,” said Todd Washam, NATE director of government relations and wireless industry network. “Throughout her public service, as a Senate staffer and as acting chairwoman, she has been a thoughtful and engaging leader. NATE welcomes the opportunity to continue to work with her to expand broadband services, improve telehealth services, and other contractor priorities. NATE encourages the Senate to act on Chairwoman Rosenworcel’s re-nomination, so she can continue to serve in this position.
