President Trump Nominated Jessica Rosenworcel to Return to FCC

Democrat Jessica Rosenworcel was chosen to return to the Federal Communications Commission, where she supported net neutrality rules and stricter media ownership limits that now may be undone under Republican leadership.

In the weeks before Trump's official announcement, Rosenworcel had been widely viewed as the front-runner for her party's open slot at the FCC, sources previously told Recode.

Rosenworcel, a Democrat, was re-nominated by Obama in January of 2017 to serve another term, after Senate lawmakers failed to extend her term before Congress adjourned at the end of a year ago. Usually commissioners are paired, Democrat and Republican, before being voted, but Reid said he agreed to vote O'Rielly by himself after getting McConnell's promise that Rosenworcel would also get a vote.

Israel to reduce power supply to Gaza
Though Israeli politicians have argued for changing policy toward UNRWA, Netanyahu appears to have finally done so. Every month, Israel would dock money from that transfer to cover the cost of electricity supply in Gaza.

Chairman Ajit Pai has used the occasion of a Republican majority to dramatically re-cast a proceeding governing business data services, to reverse broadband privacy rules, and to begin the process or reconsidering the Obama-administration agency's net neutrality regulations, as well as other measures. Most significantly, she took the cable industry's side in the effort to end the Great Cable Box Rip-Off by noting she had "concerns" over the proposed plan. Recode recently pegged Brendan Carr, now general counsel for Ajit Pai's FCC, as the favorite for the Republican slot.

Senate Republicans may wait for Rosenworcel's Republican counterpart to be nominated before considering her.

Her term officially ended on June 30, 2016 but she had been formally approved for a second term by President Obama many months before.

Theresa May forms a government with another party
Downing Street says it hopes to finalize the deal next week, after Parliament resumes sitting. Johnson dismissed the reports as "tripe", tweeting late on Saturday that he was backing May.

"This appointment rights a wrong, because she deserved confirmation previous year, and should have been sitting on the commission all along".

"Jessica Rosenworcel has been a champion of connecting our classrooms and libraries and closing the homework gap for students who don't have broadband at home", said David L. Cohen, senior executive VP and chief diversity officer, for Comcast, in a statement.

"She has a distinguished record of public service, including the four-and-a-half years we worked together at this agency, and I look forward to working with her once again to advance the public interest", Pai said. Nelson is the ranking member of the Senate Commerce Committee.

Coats, Rogers Won't Discuss Talks With Trump About Russia Probe
Republicans and Democrats on the panel examined and cross-examined the group - picking over their answers repeatedly. We will not discuss private conversations in a public hearing.

"We congratulate Jessica Rosenworcel and look forward to working closely to promote competition and fairness to all Americans", the group's president, Gene Kimmelman, said Wednesday. "NAB strongly supports her renomination and confirmation".
