ARLINGTON, Va.--()--Today, FCC Commissioner Robert McDowell announced that he will be stepping down from his position as a commissioner of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)® released the following statements:
“Commissioner McDowell drills down on issues and asks difficult questions, he points out the elephant in the room, and he makes all of us think and work harder to ensure a rational result. He also makes us laugh with his fantastic sense of humor”

We wish Commissioner McDowell the very best as he moves on to new adventures,” said Gary Shapiro, CEA president and CEO.
“Commissioner McDowell drills down on issues and asks difficult questions, he points out the elephant in the room, and he makes all of us think and work harder to ensure a rational result.
