"The wireless industry thanks Congressman Guthrie and Congresswoman Matsui for their leadership in winning bipartisan support for the Federal Spectrum Incentive Act. Their bill provides a creative way to repurpose federal spectrum that isn't being utilized or used efficiently and in doing so will help the commercial mobile industry gain access to spectrum it needs to maintain America's place as the world's leader in wireless broadband service. This is an innovative bill and it deserves the support of the full House."

"CTIA also congratulates Chairman Walden on passage of the FCC Process Reform Act. We share his view that a streamlined, more predictable regulatory process will enhance regulatory certainty and promote economic growth, innovation and job creation. With this in mind, we are appreciative that Chairman Walden and Ranking Member Eshoo were able to reach agreement on the bill and hope it will be approved by the full House at the earliest possible date."
