ARLB002 Senate Approves Second Term for FCC Commissioner Mignon
Clyburn

In June 2012, President Barack Obama nominated Mignon Clyburn to
serve a second term as FCC Commissioner. On January 1, 2013, the
Senate confirmed her nomination, paving the way to Clyburn's first
full term as one of five FCC Commissioners.

"I am so pleased that the Senate has approved Commissioner Clyburn's
re-nomination to the FCC," said FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski in a
written statement. "Commissioner Clyburn is an excellent and
dedicated public servant and has been a strong advocate in seeking
to extend the benefits of broadband to all Americans. I look forward
to continuing to work closely with Commissioner Clyburn and
congratulate her on her new term."

Clyburn's five-year appointment is retroactive to July 1, 2012, when
her first term expired. No date has yet been announced for her
swearing-in ceremony.
