The committee held a hearing on the nominations of Michael Copps and Deborah Taylor to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Among the issues they testified about were the Universal Service Fund, family-tier cable programming to decency legislation, and broadband deployment. Following the hearing, Senator Stevens responded to questions and comments from reporters.

The nominees were confirmed on December 22, 2005. The term of Mr. Copps, a Democrat who already served on the FCC, would expire in 2010. Ms. Tate’s term would expire in 2007 since she took the seat vacated by former FCC Chairman Michael Powell. close
