In his Opening Statement, Redl explained “improving the performance of government spectrum systems, providing incentives for government agencies to make better use of spectrum, and promoting spectrum research and development have been critical to the digital economy… [and he will] work to continue to improve government spectrum efficiency and make additional spectrum available” if confirmed. Regarding wireless siting policies, Redl committed to working to enable the timely siting of infrastructure on public lands and rural areas.
