Kevin Martin has proven himself to be an unwavering ally for families throughout his tenure at the Federal Communications Commission. He has crossed party lines to protect consumers and families from indecent and obscene programming. He has never hesitated to go up against corporations and networks when necessary.

Martin consistently demonstrated a genuine concern for the impact of telecommunications on the family. I thank him for safeguarding the public's right to make the airwaves suitable for viewing and listening. It is our hope that Julius Genachowski, Obama's pick to head the FCC, follows in Martin's footsteps and continues this commitment to the American people."
