Washington, DC, January 21, 2021 – WISPA extends its congratulations to Jessica Rosenworcel, who was just appointed Acting Chairwoman of the FCC by President Joe Biden. Since coming to the FCC in 2012, Acting FCC Chairwoman Rosenworcel has been a forward-thinking champion of bridging the digital divide, and of expanding access to broadband through, among other means, more unlicensed spectrum. She has a tremendous understanding of how the FCC works, deep knowledge of communications law, FCC rules and policy precedents, and is keenly aware of the needs of the various stakeholders in our multi-faceted communications industry. We look forward to working with her as she guides the FCC.
Congratulations, Acting Chairwoman Rosenworcel!
