Senate confirms two FCC nominees

The Senate on Thursday confirmed Democrat Jessica Rosenworcel and Republican Brendan Carr for seats on the FCC but did not yet reconfirm GOP Chairman Ajit Pai to another term.

It wasn’t immediately clear whether Carr was confirmed for two consecutive terms or just one. Democrats had objected to giving him more than one term.

The Senate also confirmed Vishal Amin, the Trump administration’s pick to be intellectual property enforcement coordinator.
