CEA Hails The Efficient Use of Government Spectrum Act of 2013

Legislation Would Help Solve the Nation’s Impending Spectrum Crunch

ARLINGTON, Va.--()--The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)®, today applauded Reps. Brett Guthrie (R-Ky.) and Doris Matsui (D-Calif.) of the Subcommittee on Communications and Technology of the U.S. House of Representatives for introducing the Efficient Use of Government Spectrum Act of 2013.

Gary Shapiro, president and CEO, CEA, released the following statement in response to the legislation:

“This legislation represents an important effort in reallocating our nation’s valuable spectrum for wireless broadband, while raising much-needed funds for the U.S. Treasury. The 1755-1780 MHz band represents key spectrum that our nation’s innovators need to deploy robust mobile broadband networks for the benefit of all Americans.

“We commend Reps. Guthrie and Matsui for introducing this important legislation and urge quick passage by the full House.”
