WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Senate confirmed on Monday Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai to serve another five-year term on the telecommunications regulatory panel.
Pai won confirmation 52-41 over objections from Democrats, who criticized him for moving to dismantle Obama-era internet access rules and taking other steps to deregulate U.S. telecommunications rules but Republicans praised for taking steps to boost rural internet service.
