On May 9, 2022, two public interest organizations, Schools, Health & Libraries Broadband Coalition (SHLB) and National Digital Inclusion Alliance (NDIA), sent a letter to the White House urging President Biden to take action to promote the nomination of Gigi Sohn to be a Commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC).
In their letter the groups noted that, the FCC cannot move forward on several significant public interest issues until Ms. Sohn is confirmed by the full U.S. Senate. Reform of the federal Universal Service Fund, the success of the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) and impactful rulemaking on digital discrimination. …While the vote to confirm her nomination must be made in the U.S. Senate, many U.S. Senators look to the White House for leadership on Ms. Sohn’s nomination.
