Clyburn takes oath again for FCC


Charleston native Mignon Clyburn has begun her second term on the Federal Communications Commission.

She took the oath of office today at Charleston City Hall, for another four-year term, after being re-nominated by President Obama.

"We are responsible for public safety engagement," Clyburn says of the FCC.  "The decisions that we make can mean the difference between life and death.  I take that responsibility quite seriously and I'm very proud to be a part of an organization that does."

Clyburn says her biggest goal for her second term is to further expand internet accessibility.
