CTIA Statement on House Intelligence Committee Chairman Roger’s Comments on FCC Commissioners’ Testimony

After Chairman of the Intelligence Committee and a senior member of the Energy and Commerce Committee Mike Rogers (R-MI-08) issued a statement on the FCC Commissioners’ testimony, I said:

“We commend House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers for urging the Department of Defense, NTIA and the FCC to work together to free the unused and underutilized government spectrum for commercial use. As we have stated many times before, spectrum is a valuable and finite resource that fuels the ‘virtuous cycle’ of innovation and competition in the U.S., which means Americans benefit from the world’s best wireless products and services. As Chairman Rogers noted, spectrum is an engine to grow the U.S. economy, since it not only provides the U.S. Treasury with billions from the auction proceeds, but it also means our members will create even more jobs and invest in infrastructure across the country. America and Americans cannot afford to wait; we need to move as quickly as possible to make government spectrum available for commercial use.”
