GPSIA Statement on House Passage of the Spectrum Coordination Act (H.R. 2501)
WASHINGTON, April 5, 2022 – Acting Executive Director of the GPS Innovation Alliance (GPSIA), Alex Damato, issued the following statement on House passage of H.R. 2501, the Spectrum Coordination Act:
“GPSIA and the GPS industry applauds the House of Representatives' strong bipartisan vote on passage of the Spectrum Coordination Act. This timely action is a step toward codifying important aspects of the FCC and NTIA’s recently announced Spectrum Coordination Initiative, and we strongly agree that improving the spectrum coordination process through a whole-of-government approach is necessary to strengthen our spectrum policy decision making. We thank Representative Bilirakis for his efforts in championing H.R. 2501 and look forward to continued work with Congress, the FCC, and NTIA on improving the government’s spectrum policy collaboration, including through accepted interference protection criteria that are necessary to protect vital satellite-based services like GPS.”
