House Passes Bill Requiring FCC, NTIA to Update MoU on Spectrum Coordination
Wednesday, April 06, 2022 | Comments

The U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill that would require the FCC and the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) to update their memorandum of understanding (MoU) on spectrum coordination.

If the law is passed by the Senate and then signed by the president, the law would require the new MoU to:
• Improve upon the process for resolving frequency allocation disputes “in shared or adjacent allocations” between the FCC and NTIA to ensure that the disputes are resolved efficiently and quickly,
• Ensure the efficient use of spectrum, and
• Establish “reasonable” timelines for information exchange between the NTIA and the FCC to ensure effective spectrum coordination and collaboration.

The FCC and NTIA have already taken steps toward revising the MoU, which they agreed to in 2013. FCC Chairwoman Jessica Rosenworcel and NTIA Head Alan Davidson held the first of several monthly meetings aimed at improving coordination between the two agencies at the end of March.
