August 3, 2017

WASHINGTON – The following is a statement from Senator Chris Dodd, Chairman and CEO of the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), on the Senate confirmations of Brendan Carr and Jessica Roseworcel to serve as commissioners for the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).

“The MPAA congratulates Brendan Carr and Jessica Rosenworcel on their confirmations to serve as FCC commissioners. As a former appellate law clerk and veteran of the FCC, with three years of experience advising Chairman Pai and time in the General Counsel’s Office, including as its top lawyer, Mr. Carr is well positioned to promote investment, innovation, and sound communications policy. Commissioner Rosenworcel has served ably at the FCC both as a commissioner and as a staffer, and as counsel to the Senate Commerce Committee. We are certain she will add to that record of distinction in a new term. The MPAA looks forward to working with Commissioners Carr and Rosenworcel.”
