Obama nominee Mignon Clyburn stepping down from FCC

- April 17, 2018

FCC Democratic Commissioner Mignon Clyburn announced plans to step down from the agency Tuesday, ending an eight-year tenure focused on the needs of low-income and minority communities.

Clyburn, an Obama nominee who joined the FCC in 2009, made the announcement at an FCC meeting.

She was part of the Democratic majority that approved the net neutrality rules in 2015, and has been a vocal critic of their repeal in December by the agency's Republican leadership under Chairman Ajit Pai.
