A squabble between the Senate and the White House over the status of a piece of legislation has brought to a screeching halt Robert McDowell's nomination to be an FCC commissioner.
The legislation in question concerns more than $400 million in funding requests from schools and libraries--money that comes out of the Universal Service Fund, which is overseen by the FCC. The problem, according to Senate staffers, is that FCC accounting rules "drastically limited the amount of funding for these programs."
