WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Senate Commerce Committee will hold a Nov. 10 hearing on the nomination of a senior government official to join the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) after President Donald Trump urged speedy action.
Last month, Trump nominated Nathan Simington, a Commerce Department official who was involved in the administration’s efforts to seek new social media regulations. “Republicans need to get smart and confirm Nate Simington to the FCC ASAP!” Trump wrote on Twitter last week.
