Published

on

Energy and Commerce Committee Ranking Member Henry A. Waxman issued the following statement on Federal Communications Commission Chairman Julius Genachowski’s announcement that he will be leaving the Commission:

Chairman Genachowski has been a brilliant chair of the Federal Communications Commission. He has transformed and energized the agency. Under his leadership, the FCC protected consumer access to the free and open Internet, preserved and expanded wireless competition, and reformed the broken universal service and intercarrier compensation system. He successfully championed legislation in Congress to address the nation’s spectrum shortage by authorizing the world’s first incentive auctions. I thank him for his service, congratulate him on his accomplishments, and wish him well in his future endeavors.
