Genachowski, McDowell approved by Commerce Committee

The Senate Commerce Committee approved the nominations of Julius Genachowski as Federal Communications Commission Chairman and Robert McDowell as Republican FCC Commissioner, forwarding both nominees to the full U.S. Senate for confirmation. The Genachowski nomination moved very quickly this week through commitee hearings after it appeared recently it might take longer. Some reports now suggests that Genachowski could head to work at the FCC as early as sometime next week.
