FCC Member Pai Says He Voted Against Globalstar Proposal

Updated on

Ajit Pai, a member of the Federal Communications Commission, said he voted against a proposal to let Globalstar Inc. make heavier use of its airwaves.

Pai said in an e-mailed statement that adopting Democratic FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler’s proposal would “give a particular company special rights.” Pai is a member of the agency’s Republican minority, which has lost a series of 3-2 votes led by Wheeler.
