The Senate Commerce Committee has scheduled Dec. 18 for a
markup hearing and vote on the renomination of Mignon Clyburn to the FCC and
Joshua Wright as the new Republican commissioner of the Federal Trade
Commission.

Both had their nomination
hearings last week.

She joined the FCC in 2009, filling the unexpired term of
Democrat Jonathan Adelstein, who left to head the Rural Utilities Service
(RUS).

She is expected to be confirmed, as is Wright.
