FCC, NTIA leadership meet to plan spectrum policy

FCC Chairman Michael Powell and Acting Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Communications and Information Michael Gallagher met late last week to plan and coordinate the efforts of the FCC and the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) on spectrum policy issues.

“I am pleased that the FCC and NTIA, under its new leadership team, are working closely on these increasingly important and challenging issues,” said Powell. “This cooperation will better enable us to bring the benefits of new and enhanced spectrum-based services to businesses and consumers. I look forward to working with Mike to achieve our common goals.”

"Working with Chairman Powell and his fellow Commissioners, NTIA and the FCC have delivered world-leading spectrum policy results for the American people,” said Michael D. Gallagher, Commerce’s acting assistant secretary. “Cutting-edge spectrum policy means job creation, economic leadership, and military strength. The meeting laid the foundation for the next round of spectrum successes."
