SPOTLIGHT: FCC Commissioner may cast AT&T merger vote

FCC Commissioner Robert McDowell will be allowed to cast the tie-breaking vote on the proposed acquisition of BellSouth by AT&T, the FCC's general counsel announced. "You are now free to participate if you choose to do so," the counsel said in a memo. McDowell previously said he would not vote on the merger because he once worked for an association that represented rivals of the two companies. He said in a statement he would review the counsel's opinion. Article
