Lawmakers Intro 'RADIOS' Spectrum Inventory Act
Mar 3, 2011, 8:38 AM by Eric M. Zeman
U.S. Senators Olympia J. Snowe of Maine and John Kerry of Massachusetts recently proposed a new law that would overhaul how the government accounts for and manages wireless spectrum. The Reforming Airwaves by Developing Incentives and Opportunistic Sharing (RADIOS) Act, which is a modified version of legislation proposed by Snowe and Kerry last year, aims to streamline the spectrum management process. The bill would require the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) to perform a detailed inventory of spectrum use in the U.S. This information will then be analyzed to determine how the spectrum is being used and to provide the FCC and NTIA with the information they need to make better decisions on how to manage spectrum use. Senator Snowe says the bill complements the National Broadband Plan.
