Spectrum Management Policy: Hearing Before the Committee on Commerce, U.S. House of Representatives
Congressional hearing on how radio spectrum can be managed to achieve sound communications policy. This is the first hearing before the Committee's Subcommittee on Telecommunications, Trade, & Consumer Protection with the head of the NTIA & the Chairman of the FCC.

The FCC & the NTIA still have a role in managing the spectrum in the public interest, which must mean more than simply financial profit for the government.
