WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) – member of the U.S. Senate Commerce, Science, and Transportation Committee – today released the following statement after the Senate unanimously confirmed Kansan Geoffrey Starks to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC):
“Born and raised in Leawood, Geoffrey is only the third Kansan ever to serve on the FCC,” said Sen. Moran. “As the assistant bureau chief of the FCC’s Enforcement Bureau and former senior counsel to the deputy attorney general at the U.S. Department of Justice, Geoffrey’s dedication to public service is exceptional. Critical issues before the FCC – such as efficient and effective broadband deployment that rural Kansas so desperately needs – require this type of fervent passion, and I look forward to working with Geoffrey, Chairman Pai and their fellow FCC commissioners in a bipartisan fashion to continue addressing the communications needs facing our country today.”
Item to Note:
- In June, Sen. Moran introduced Starks in front of the Senate Commerce Committee during a nomination hearing.
