President Joe Biden has formally nominated Jessica Rosenworcel for another five-year term as a Commissioner of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and has designated her to formally serve as Chair of the Commission.
Rosenworcel’s nomination for an additional term is subject to review by the U.S. Senate. If confirmed, Rosenworcel would be the first woman to serve in the role of Commission Chair.
Rosenworcel has served as an FCC Commissioner since 2012, and as Acting Chair of the Commission since the beginning of the Biden administration. Prior to joining the FCC, she served as the Senior Communications Counsel for the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation. Before her service in the public sector, Rosenworcel practiced communications law.
