The Senate voted 52-41 Monday to confirm Ajit Pai for another five-year term as chairman of the Federal Communications Commission, Reuters reported Tuesday.

Pai said in a statement that he aims to continue focusing on “bridging the digital divide, promoting innovation, protecting consumers and public safety, and making the FCC more open and transparent.”

President Donald Trump appointed Pai as FCC chairman in January.

Pai joined the telecommunications regulatory agency in 2012 as a commissioner, after working as a partner at law firm Jenner and Block and as associate general counsel at Verizon.
