This hearing will focus on how a coordinated and comprehensive approach to domestic spectrum policy is critical to U.S. national security. A unified approach will enable the United States to lead internationally, which will help counter threats like those from Huawei and ZTE. Reinstating the Federal Communications Commission’s spectrum auction authority, engaging in fact-based spectrum decision-making, and investing in dynamic spectrum sharing and other technologies will ensure the United States leads in spectrum use policy that protects the nation’s critical national security and economic competitiveness missions.
