CTIA Statement On The Passage Of The Temporary Payroll Tax Cut Continuation Act Of 2011
WASHINGTON, Feb. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Please attribute the following statement to CTIA-The Wireless Association® President and CEO Steve Largent :
"For more than three years, CTIA and its members have been advocating for more spectrum so America's wireless industry can remain the world's leader in the deployment of advanced wireless services. Today's bipartisan vote to pass the Temporary Payroll Tax Cut Continuation Act of 2011, which includes provisions to make a substantial swath of spectrum available for commercial use, represents an important step toward meeting the industry's spectrum needs.
"We are grateful to Representatives Upton, Walden, Waxman and Eshoo and Senators Rockefeller and Hutchison for their leadership throughout this process. Their dedication and focus were paramount to securing the bipartisan and bicameral support necessary to enact spectrum reform. We also appreciate FCC Chairman Genachowski and the FCC commissioners for their contribution to this effort."Ultimately, today's vote was a resounding victory for consumers and the American economy. Making spectrum available will make it possible for America's wireless carriers to offer consumers better, faster, more ubiquitous wireless broadband service. The release of additional spectrum also will spur the investment and job creation that our economy needs."
