    FCC Chairman Ajit Pai has announced[1] that he intends to appoint Rosemary C. Harold to serve as chief of the Enforcement Bureau. Michael Carowitz, who has been serving as acting bureau chief, will become the Bureau's deputy chief. Harold is an attorney with experience within the FCC agency and in private practice; she's also a former journalist.

    "This agency has a critical role to play in enforcing the law to protect consumers and support competition in the communications marketplace," Pai said "Our Enforcement Bureau has been getting back on track in recent months, and I am confident in Rosemary's ability to continue this progress."

    Pai also praised Carowitz's work as acting chief. "Michael's steady hand at the helm of this important Bureau has helped us stay on task in protecting consumers and enforcing the law," he said.

    The Enforcement Bureau is charged with enforcing the Communications Act, FCC rules, and various licensing terms and conditions. It also investigates instances of possible unlawful conduct involving the regulated RF spectrum.

    Who did she work for before and who did they represent? I bet you can find a telecom company in there somewhere. Not a fan of Paj. We need someone who will actually do something about the state broadband duopolies and monopolies. We also need to outlaw this corporate lawyer>Bcrat>lobbyist>elected-official merry-go-round.

    ... Old age is life's parody.
