The Senate has voted unanimously to confirm Democrat Mignon Clyburn and Republican Meredith Attwell Baker to the Federal Communications Commission, bringing the five-member panel to full force. Clyburn, daughter of House Majority Whip James Clyburn of South Carolina, has served as a South Carolina public utilities regulator since 1998. Baker was head of the National Telecommunications and Information Administration under the Bush White House.

The newest FCC chairman, Democrat Julius Genachowski, was sworn in last month. Democrat Michael Copps and Republican Robert McDowell round out the commissioners.
