ABSTRACT
The article reports on the failure of the U.S. Commerce Department to submit its progress report on implementing recommendations to improve spectrum management on its deadline to U.S. President George W. Bush. Political handling and the wireless initiative prioritization by the administration was questioned after the deadline failure. Deadline for the submission of a plan to identify and implement incentives to promote more efficient use of federal government airwaves was also missed by the department. Clyde Ensslin, spokesman for the U.S. National Telecommunications and Information Administration, commented on drafts of the report and incentives plan.
