U.S. Chamber Letter on H.R. 2501, the “Spectrum Coordination Act”

Dear Chair Pallone and Ranking Member McMorris Rodgers:

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce urges the Committee to favorably report H.R. 2501, the “Spectrum Coordination Act,” which would contribute to a comprehensive, unified, national spectrum management strategy.

An approach that gets spectrum right would help ensure that all Americans are connected and will enable numerous commercial innovations across sectors. H.R. 2501 would achieve these objectives by directing the National Telecommunications and Information Administration and the Federal Communications Commission to update the Memorandum of Understanding on Spectrum Coordination. Such a policy would modernize the process to resolve frequency allocation disputes and ensure that spectrum is used and shared efficiently.

The Chamber supports H.R. 2501 and urges the Committee to favorably report this bill.
