IOWA SENATOR CHUCK GRASSLEY IS BATTLING WITH THE FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION OVER ITS DEALINGS WITH A COMPANY KNOWN AS “LIGHTSQUARED”.

GRASSLEY SAYS THE FCC REFUSES TO PROVIDE INFORMATION ON WHY THEY’RE ALLOWING THE COMPANY TO MOVE AHEAD WITH A 4G NETWORK THAT MAY INTERFERE WITH G-P-S SYSTEMS USED BY THE MILITARY, EMERGENCY RESPONDERS AND PILOTS.

GRASSLEY SAYS THE FCC APPROVED LIGHTSQUARED VERY QUICKLY, AND THAT BRINGS OTHER QUESTIONS TO BEAR:

GRASSLEY SAYS HE WILL PUT A HOLD ON TWO F-C-C NOMINEES WHEN THEIR APPOINTMENTS REACH THE SENATE UNTIL THE AGENCY PROVIDES HIM THE INFORMATION.

HE SAYS THE PUBLIC’S BUSINESS OUGHT TO BE PUBLIC.
    

GRASSLEY MADE HIS COMMENTS ON IMPACT WITH SAM CLOVIS.
