Oct 22, 2019
Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Frank Pallone, Jr. (D-NJ) and Communications and Technology Subcommittee Chairman Mike Doyle (D-PA) announced today that the Communications and Technology Subcommittee will hold a hearing on Tuesday, October 29, at 10 a.m. in room 2322 of the Rayburn House Office Building entitled “Repurposing the C-Band to Benefit all Americans.”

“The FCC must repurpose the C-Band in a manner that promotes competition, spurs the 5G revolution, and yields revenue for important priorities here at home.  There may be a need for legislation to reduce uncertainty and benefit Americans,” said Pallone and Doyle.  “What we don’t want is the Federal Communications Commission to become mired in litigation that slows 5G deployment.  We must ensure the American people benefit from this process, and we look forward to discussing these important issues at the hearing next week.”

Information for this hearing, including the Committee Memorandum, witness list and testimony, and a live webcast, will be posted HERE as they become available.
