Redl Confirmed As NTIA Chief

The Senate confirmed David Redl as head of the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, the Trump Administration's chief telecom advisor. NTIA also oversees government spectrum holders in much the way the Federal Communications Commission oversees private ones. Redl was nominated by President Donald Trump back in May. Redl is the former chief counsel of the House Commerce Committee's Communications Subcommittee. Redl had been chief counsel of the subcommittee 2013, before that serving as counsel to the full committee. Before joining the committee, Redl was director of regulatory affairs for CTIA-The Wireless Association, where he focused on spectrum policy and wireless broadband.
