Lawmakers go to bat with FCC for LightSquared

Brian Bilbray (R-Calif.), Joe Pitts (R-Pa.), Jim Moran (D-Va.) and Gerry Connolly (D-Va.) said the FCC should “examine all potential paths forward before closing the door on what could be an opportunity to increase competition and access in the nation’s wireless providers.”
