Verizon Statement on Renomination of FCC Commissioner

WASHINGTON - The White House on Tuesday (June 2) announced President Obama's intent to renominate Federal Communications Commissioner Robert McDowell to the commission.  The following is a statement by Susanne Guyer, Verizon senior vice president of federal regulatory affairs, on that announcement:


"Robert McDowell has shown a deep understanding of this industry and the role that market incentives play in stimulating both wireline and wireless broadband deployment.  At this crucial time for broadband investment, jobs and the economy, there needs to be a full team of commissioners in place.  So we hope Congress will act quickly to approve the nominees."
