Hundt nom moves forward

The Senate Commerce Committee this week formally received the White House nomination of Reed Hundt to serve as chairman of the Federal Communications Commission.

The committee, chaired by Sen. Ernest Hollings (D-S.C.), is likely to hold confirmation hearings on Hundt in mid-September.

Meanwhile, the White House is not close to nominating a candidate to fill the fifth and final FCC slot vacated by Sherrie Marshall, according to D.C. sources. The nominee must be either a Republican or an independent, and will probably be a woman, since the FCC has traditionally had at least one female commissioner.
