“Today’s strong bipartisan approval of S. 911 by the Senate Commerce Committee is a critical step forward in realizing the President’s commitment to “win the future” through increased innovation in and access to wireless broadband technologies.  I commend Chairman Rockefeller and Senator Hutchison for their bipartisan leadership in crafting a comprehensive, forward-looking measure that will spur wireless innovation, economic growth and job creation; provide our nation’s first responders with modern, efficient and interoperable communications capabilities; and reduce the deficit.  We look forward to working with both Houses of Congress in a bipartisan fashion as this bill moves through the legislative process.”
