Chairs Rodgers, Latta Announce Hearing on the Future of Spectrum Management

Washington, D.C. — House Energy and Commerce Committee Chair Cathy Rodgers (R-WA) and Communications and Technology Subcommittee Chair Bob Latta (R-OH) announced a subcommittee hearing titled “Defending America’s Wireless Leadership.”  

“Commercial spectrum policy is national security policy. We know the Chinese Communist Party seeks to write the rules for future communications technologies and has already used companies like Huawei to tap into our communications networks to surveil Americans. Conducting this hearing on the importance of establishing a strong national spectrum policy, including extending the FCC’s spectrum auction authority, is necessary in order to secure our global competitive edge against China while strengthening American communications leadership.” 

The Subcommittee on Communications and Technology hearing is titled “Defending America’s Wireless Leadership.”
