House Committee Sets Spectrum Legislation Markup

November 23, 2011

The House Energy and Commerce Committee confirmed on Wednesday that it has scheduled a Dec. 1 markup for spectrum legislation after the super-committee failed to find a compromise.

"Spectrum legislation is a longstanding priority for both parties and a key element of our pro-jobs strategy," Technology Subcommittee Chairman Greg Walden, R-Ore., said in a statement. Specific details of the bill were not released but Walden promised that it would "create thousands of jobs, establish an interoperable public safety network, and reduce the deficit."

Various proposals in both the House and Senate have been dogged by disagreements over how to free up more spectrum for broadband, and how to provide for a national public safety communications network.
