Bush not expected to name FTC, FCC heads anytime soon

Published on .

President-elect George W. Bush's choices to head the Federal Trade Commission and the Federal Communications Commission will not come until next week at the earliest, press secretary Ari Fleischer said on Jan. 16. Mr. Fleischer, who two weeks ago indicated the choices were imminent, said that while the Bush team is well along in the transition, its delay in starting a transition has meant that some posts usually announced before a president takes office will be filled later this time. Mr. Fleischer declined to offer a deadline for filling the posts and said the immediate concentration is on the inauguration and some policy initiatives due to be unveiled next week.
