U.S. Senate Confirms Anna Gomez to FCC

The seat has been open for three years.

The Senate confirmed Anna Gomez to the Federal Communications Commission this week. The previous nominee for the FCC seat, Gigi Sohn, withdrew from consideration in March.

Commissioner Gomez has also worked at the National Telecommunications and Information Administration and was vice president of government affairs for Sprint. She previously served as deputy chief of the FCC’s international bureau and as head of the bureau overseeing landlines.

The new FCC commissioner said she would work in support of reclassifying the internet to make service providers “common carriers.” Such a move would allow the FCC to establish additional regulations over ISPs, including net neutrality.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Chair Jessica Rosenworcel to be led by God as she heads the FCC.
  • For Commissioner Gomez as she assumes her seat at the FCC.
  • That the president and U.S. communications officials would uphold the freedom of speech.
