The ARRL Letter reports that during the course of her confirmation hearings, Connecticut Senator Richard Blumenthal asked for and received a commitment from Rosenworcel to provide his office with "an update on the steps that the FCC is taking to support amateur radio operators." The League notes that there are multiple amateur radio-related proceedings pending before the Commission, some for five years or longer, and is hopeful that Blumenthal's highlighting of these matters will prompt some action in the near future.
