Washington, D.C. – Congressman Dave Loebsack announced today that he will be hosting a series of roundtables at rural telecommunications providers across Iowa to discuss legislation he helped introduce to expand wireless coverage in rural communities. The bipartisan Rural Spectrum Accessibility Act would provide incentives for wireless carriers to lease unused spectrum to rural or smaller carriers. At each stop, Loebsack will also take a brief tour of the facilities and hear directly from providers about their challenges and successes.
Loebsack is a member of the Communications and Technology Subcommittee of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, which has jurisdiction over broadband issues.
