FCC chairman circulates order to approve Sprint, T-Mobile tie-up

WASHINGTON, Aug 14 (Reuters) - Federal Communications Commission chairman Ajit Pai on Wednesday circulated a draft order that would grant approval to the $26 billion tie-up of T-Mobile Us Inc and Sprint Corp.

The order must still be approved by two of the other four FCC commissioners. The U.S. Justice Department approved the merger last month but the deal still faces a court challenge from 16 state attorneys general. (Reporting by David Shepardson Editing by Nick Zieminski)
