WIA Statement on House Vote in Favor of FCC Reauthorization

The Wireless Infrastructure Association (WIA) issued the following statement from Jonathan Adelstein, President and CEO of WIA, regarding the House of Representatives vote today to pass the RAY BAUM’S Act (FCC Reauthorization Act).

“Today’s vote is a great step forward for a variety of reasons including the legislation’s aim to prepare the Federal Communications Commission and the wireless industry for the next generation of telecommunications technologies and deployment. This act also incorporates several elements of the MOBILE Now Act, including making more spectrum available and streamlining siting of wireless infrastructure in federal lands. We commend the bipartisan leadership of the House and Senate commerce committees for their leadership and commitment to bringing broadband to communities across the country. We look forward to working in both chambers to ensure all Americans enjoy the benefits responsible and sustainable broadband deployment provides.”
