The Monitoring Association (TMA) has delivered the LMCC-approved amended Consensus Protocol for coordinating central station frequencies to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) where it is under review. The FCC has received Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval for the revised rule section requiring TMA concurrence as part of the coordination process for these frequencies. When the FCC approves the new Protocol, it will issue a Public Notice announcing filing procedures for this spectrum.

Walden’s staff (the same office that insisted on extracting Public Safety (PS) T-Band in exchange for FirstNet spectrum) has circulated a discussion draft of legislation entitled “Secure T-Band Allocation and No Diversion Act of 2019.” The legislation would grant a three-year reprieve before T-Band would need to be reallocated and auctioned but not for States or political subdivisions that are diverting 9-1-1 fees for other purposes.
