A coalition of public interest groups are calling on the Senate to confirm Gigi Sohn, President Joe Biden’s pick to fill out the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), as quickly as possible. In a release on Tuesday, several prominent groups including MediaJustice said confirming Sohn swiftly was essential for the FCC to begin tackling numerous issues like restoring net neutrality rules, the agency’s authority over the broadband industry, addressing broadband affordability, and more.

“For more than a year, the FCC has been operating without a full slate of commissioners, hampering its ability to advance all of the important tasks on its agenda,” the groups wrote in a release on Tuesday. “This is why 350,000 people and counting have taken action in the past year by calling on the White House and Senate to act to get all commissioners confirmed, and more than 100,000 people across the country have weighed in specifically to support Ms. Sohn’s confirmation since she was first nominated in October.”
