Obama Renominates McDowell for FCC Commissioner

President Obama will renominate Robert M. McDowell for another term as FCC Commissioner.

McDowell was first nominated by President George W. Bush in 2006. Immediately prior to joining the FCC, Commissioner McDowell was senior vice president and assistant general counsel for COMPTEL, an association representing competitive facilities-based telecommunications service providers, emerging VoIP providers, integrated communications companies, and their supplier partners, where he had responsibilities involving advocacy efforts before Congress, the White House and executive agencies.
