EWA Meets with Texas Senator Cornyn on T-Band

Democrats in both the House and Senate have introduced legislation entitled “Don’t Break Up the T-Band Act of 2018,” which seeks to rescind a 2012 Congressional mandate that public safety incumbents must leave the band so that it may be auctioned for yet more broadband purposes. On November 1, EWA and representatives from the American Petroleum Institute, the Utilities Technology Council, and the International Association of Fire Chiefs met with Sen. Cornyn’s (R-TX) staff to enlist his support for this initiative. The parties are attempting to schedule calls between T-band licensees in Texas and the Senator’s office. (PS 13-42)
