Senate Commerce Committee Postpones Hearing on FCC Nomination of Michael O’Rielly

The Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation has postponed the Nomination Hearing on Michael O’Rielly to be FCC Commissioner. The Senate Commerce Committee already held a hearing on the nomination of Thomas Wheeler to be the next FCC Chairman; however, the full Senate has yet to vote to confirm Wheeler’s nomination.  This delay is due to the fact that Congress has yet to pass a budget to fund the federal government and the fiscal year started on October 1, 2013.  The FCC currently has three confirmed FCC Commissioners.
