New year, new priorities in Washington, D.C. We asked those intimately familiar with regulatory affairs and the FCC’s priorities for their thoughts on what the agency can accomplish now that Jessica Rosenworcel has been confirmed as Chair. Here’s what they had to say. 

Shirley Bloomfield
CEO
NTCA-The Rural Broadband Association

“Chairwoman Rosenworcel is committed to ensuring that all Americans, regardless of where they live, not only have access to dependable broadband connectivity, but are able to use and afford it as well. I was thrilled when she took the helm of the FCC and look forward to working with her on our shared goal of universal service.“

Catherine Bohigian
Executive VP of Government Affairs
Charter Communications

“Chairwoman Rosenworcel has been a strong advocate for closing the homework gap and digital divide, and we’re excited to work alongside her as we make reliable, high-speed connectivity available to hundreds of thousands of new homes and small businesses over the next several years.“

Chris Lewis
President/CEO
Public Knowledge

“The FCC has a central role in protecting consumers on communications networks. Chair Rosenworcel and a full Commission’s first priority should be to restore authority over broadband – the essential communications network of the 21st century. With that authority, the FCC can address key protections including closing the digital divide, net neutrality, privacy, and reliability standards.“

Ross Lieberman
Senior VP of Government Affairs
ACA Connects-America’s Communications Association

“Under Chairwoman Rosenworcel’s leadership, the Commission can address some of the most challenging problems contributing to the nation’s digital divides, including the ‘homework gap,’ by collecting more granular broadband deployment data, administering the Affordable Connectivity Program and Emergency Connectivity Fund, and eliminating barriers to deployment. ACA Connects wishes her every success in these efforts.“
