Will US FCC nominee Gigi Sohn be confirmed by the Senate before 24 June 2023?
Closed Mar 07, 2023 06:53PM UTC
President Biden first nominated Sohn to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in October 2021, but the Senate did not hold a confirmation vote in the last Congress (NPR). Biden renominated her in January 2023, but Republican opposition remains high (Ars Technica, Roll Call, Deadline). The question would close early upon either a withdrawal of her nomination or a full Senate vote against confirmation.
