(Oct. 3, 2018) The Wireless Infrastructure Association (WIA) issued the following statement from President and CEO Jonathan Adelstein regarding today’s passage of the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018 in the Senate.
“I am thrilled that the FAA Reauthorization Act included several essential provisions reducing the unnecessary requirement for the marking of certain communications towers. This clarification will protect the safety of low-flying aviation without imposing unnecessary regulations that would impede the deployment of 5G wireless services. WIA commends Chairman Thune and Ranking Member Nelson for their leadership and hard work in advancing this legislation. I also appreciate the persistence shown by Chairman Shuster and Ranking Member DeFazio in getting this bill through the House last week.”
