TDI ENDORSES CONTINUANCE OF ROSENWORCEL AS FCC CHAIR
Jessica Rosenworcel has been approved to continue serving as FCC Chair
Washington, D.C. [December 9, 2021] — On December 7, Jessica Rosenworcel was approved by the Senate to become the permanent Federal Communications Commission (FCC) chair, a decision that Telecommunication of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing, Inc. (TDI) fully endorses.
Chair Rosenworcel has long been a champion of accessibility for people with disabilities. Including those in the deaf or hard of hearing communities. Among her major pieces of legislative work includes the drafting of the Twenty-First Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010 (CVAA); this act hangs in her office at the FCC.
TDI looks forward to a continued successful relationship with Chair Rosenworcel. “We congratulate Chairwoman Rosenworcel on becoming the first female chairperson of the FCC. Her proven record and experience make her the right choice to continue leading the Commission and TDI looks forward working with her administration to ensure every deaf and hard of hearing has an equitable experience in information and communication technologies, as well as having broadband access from their homes.”
