I am pleased to have again been quoted in Heartlander Magazine, this time in the article “Verizon Spectrum/Cross-Marketing Deals Hit FCC Roadblock” by Kenneth Artz. The end of the article is devoted to my remarks regarding the advantages of the FCC allowing companies to harness currently unused wireless spectrum.
I have always strongly supported judging each issue on its own merits. The ability to focus on the impact of a particular transaction or measure – without letting it be clouded by surrounding tangential or even unrelated matters – is a major reason why, for instance, I support line-item veto power for the President and a legislative germaneness rule to prevent the packaging of any number of unrelated measures. The same principle should apply to the deliberations of the FCC.
