Oct 2, 2017
Press Release

WASHINGTON D.C. – Congressman Kevin Cramer issued the following statement after the U.S. Senate voted this evening 52-41 to reconfirm Ajit Pai for another term at the Federal Communications Commission (FCC):

“I congratulate my good friend, Ajit Pai, on his confirmation in the Senate today for another term at the FCC. Growing up in Parsons, Kansas, Ajit is a brilliant mind with a friendly demeanor and a major advocate for rural broadband. Given his rural roots and proven record of reducing harmful regulations on the small internet providers that connect our rural communities to the rest of the world, I’m surprised by Democrats’ opposition. He is deserving of this confirmation from all rural state senators, not just Republicans.”
